This low-top walker boot features a durable but comfortable design that makes it a great solution for a number of less serious foot injuries where a period of rest and immobilization are needed. Some examples include:
The polymer-molded upright struts of this fractured foot boot protect and support the foot and ankle. This material is molded to conform to the leg and its fit can be adjusted via three hook and loop (Velcro) closures that are quick and easy to adjust. This pneumatic surgical boot features an added strap for additional padding at the ankle, and an airpump that you can inflate or deflate depending on the fit and compression level you want. This along with the low top and relatively lightweight design makes the boot for foot fracture care more comfortable to move about in.
Another component that is specifically geared toward improving the function of this walking foot brace is its arching rocker design. This encourages a smooth gait that takes less energy, making it easier to walk around when wearing this boot after a broken foot or some other injury.
Another feature that sets this immobilizing boot apart from other boots for broken foot injuries is its wide foot bed. This diminishes the chance of any uncomfortable rubbing and it allows for swelling.
When a less roomy fit is desired, one can simply tighten the lower strap closures. The wide footbed along with the open toe design of this foot injury boot also optimizes the orthotic for post bunion surgery use. These features also improve the breathability of the foot boot for fracture care.
The liner of the boot for a sprained foot or ankle is made of a deluxe foam material that is soft against the skin as well as flexible. This lightweight material can stand up to wear. This along with the rough polymer struts makes it a durable broken foot walking boot.
A stress fracture is a common overuse injury among those who participate in sports. These tiny cracks in the bone are especially prevalent in sports such as:
Another risk factor for stress fractures can be wearing shoes with poor support (think high heels) due to the uneven weight bearing they cause and the lack of support or shock absorption they supply. Osteoporosis or other diseases that weaken the bone can also make one prone to stress fractures.
The most important component of stress fracture treatment is rest from the activity that caused the fracture in the first place or any other activities that cause pain. Wearing a lightweight walking cast boot for broken foot bones like this can help give the foot a rest, allowing the stress fracture to heal. Wearing broken foot boots will also help protect against further damage. Elevating the leg and applying ice can also help with the pain.
This stress fracture boot works well with foot or ankle sprains as well, since treatment is quite similar to that for small breaks to the bones of the foot. In some cases, this foot immobilizer boot may also help with a break to the ankle, though a doctor can give you a better gauge as to whether a high-top walking boot would be a better solution.
The wide footbed of this low boot brace makes it a favorite for the treatment of bunions. The abnormal bony bump that can form in the joint area at the base of one’s big or little toe (the latter is known as a bunionette or a tailor’s bunion) can develop as a result of wearing shoes that fit too tightly or that force uneven weight bearing. Bunions can also be the result of an inherited structural defect or certain medical conditions, like arthritis.
Wearing roomy shoes or this BraceAbility walking boot that allows extra space for the toes is a common bunion treatment. While this does not address the underlying problem, it does provide relief by allowing painful inflammation to subside. Shoe inserts can also reduce discomfort stemming from bunions, as can taping the foot in a “normal” position.
In some instances, surgery known as a bunionectomy may be needed to relieve discomfort stemming from bunions. In such instances, this post-surgical soft shoe for broken foot care can be quite helpful. One may need to use crutches if a doctor recommends a period of limited or non-weight bearing.
This walking boot for foot fracture care can also double as an orthotic for dealing with foot ulcers. Wearing this foot injury walking boot reduces pressure on the foot, allowing the open sore known as an ulcer to heal. Ulcers can stem from diabetes or other conditions that cause poor circulation.
Ulcers can be quite problematic if they become infected. Therefore, it is important to see a doctor if one develops an ulcer.
Besides wearing a foot orthotic for plantar ulcers, treatment may also involve trimming away any diseased tissue, taking antibiotics and wearing a special dressing.
What kind of boot do you wear after suffering a broken foot bone? Well most would say they want a walking boot for a broken foot bone that protects and immobilizes the foot in a way that is as comfortable as possible. Where can you get such a medical boot? Look no further… Following are more details about this support boot for a broken foot and more;
There are a number of injuries that require immobilization, protection and/or compression of the ankle or foot to heal, ranging from a broken toe to a stable stress fracture at the ankle to a plantar diabetic ulcer to the recovery period after a bunion removal. In all these scenarios, this BraceAbility pneumatic toe fracture boot fits the bill.
Functionally speaking, this lightweight and low-profile walker boot has adjustable air cells that provide compression as well as support. The outer part of this brace consists of durable, polymer-molded upright struts that conform to the shape of one’s legs.
The arching rocker design of the support encourages a smooth, natural gait that is more efficient than an awkward limp or an outward swing of the leg. This is also beneficial toward making a speedy recovery.
The soft liner of this bunion surgery boot acts as an effective buffer between the outer shell and the foot and ankle. It also leaves the toe area open, improving the breathability of the support. There is also a strap at the ankle that provides additional padding.
When dealing with a broken toe or a stress fracture injury, treatment is dependent upon what sort of break occurs. If it is a fracture where everything is in place, treatment of the stress fracture or toe break might simply involve a period of immobilization and pain management. For a toe, immobilization might involve “buddy taping” the injured one to a healthy toe and/or wearing a stiff bottomed foot support, such as this walking boot for foot injuries.
In instances where the break or stress fracture is less stable and includes displaced bone fragments, surgery may be necessary. Following surgery, one might have to wear a cast and/or a post-operative boot. Again, this BraceAbility boot is an option as are other post-operative foot supports offered by the company. Its wide footbed and open toe area make this particular walker boot an appealing choice for toe injuries in specific.
These roomy features also make it a popular walker boot after bunion surgery. Most bunions can be repaired without surgery by switching to shoes that fit properly and using orthotics such as a bunion regulator.
But in some instances, this is not enough to address discomfort stemming from bunions and surgery may be warranted. After surgery, one will likely spend time in a cast, walking brace or special shoes, depending upon the extent of the repair and the individual. Limited or no weight bearing may be required for a limited period.
A lightweight walker boot is also helpful from the standpoint that it can reduce pressure on the foot when it comes to treating a diabetic ulcer on the foot. The wide footbed of the pneumatic support is also well suited for this condition as it allows space for bandages.
This pneumatic boot has a number of features that make it a popular choice for a variety of minor injuries to the foot or ankle. These selling points include:
