Re: gel foot support help please

I use Viscopeds in my office frequently. They are good shock absorbers. Generally I have the patient walk in them a bit and if there is immediate improvement, then we go from there. Personally I do not care for the ones with the metatarsal pads. You might or might not.

There are other prefabs that may be helpful, you really have to try one several and see if it feels right to your foot.

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.
