An Austin is a chevron. There are numerous variations, just to confuse things. I do use spacers in many but not all patients post op. The bruising can vary from little to a lot depending on the patient. The more bruising, the longer it seems to take to disappear. I have seen discoloration for up to several weeks. As long as it seems to be improving, I do not usually worry.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
