Re: Ankle recovery
Hi there, I have only recently been diagnosed with OA in the ankle, but have been suffering with it for nearly a year.
A really daft one, and I cannot be sure that there is a connect, but might be worth a try. I have found that the morning problem has eased in teh last few weeks - since i started using an electric blanket at night! I don;t know if its because the joint is being kept warm all nigth or what, but I am hardly having any of the first thing in the morning "OMG I can;t walk" problem any more.
Footwear to be honest shoes/boots that are perfectly fine one day will have me in agony the next for no rhyme or reason that I can determine. I will say that things with shock abosprtion and a bit of bounce seem to be better than anything with a thin sole, my 2 pairs of skechers tone ups seem to be about the best at the moment as they have good thick bouncey souls with good arch support, but again I have had bad days with them too. Sorry that's not very helpful is it!
