Re: Foot and Ankle Swelling

These are some questions I would ask if you were my patient. It is most helpful to know what x-rays, MRI, Doppler results were.

What was the knee surgery for? Why were expecting the swelling to decrease?

What was the cause of the swelling initially?
Do you wear compression hose?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
