Re: Shattered Heel

Hi Ashley,

I'm a 23 years old, and I shattered my heel a year ago. I have a plate and 10 screws in it. The doctor would like to keep the plate in forever, but I am having issues with it. I have very bad bone pain after being on my feet for about an hour. The ankle stiffness has started to get better for me though. I was off of my feet for about 3 months and walking was horrible at first. I get better flexion as time goes on, but in the morning my foot is still very stiff. I like to think that it will get better. I do alot of excercising like bending on steps and with a towel to try to regain ankle movement.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
