Does an orthopaedic walking boot cause more pain?

Does an orthopaedic walking boot cause more pain other than the pain I already have from my ankle injury? And if it is causing more pain, should I even be in the boot?

I don't know about an ankle injury, but my understanding of the boot is to redirect your weight to your ankle/knee depending on the size of the boot. I've had bunion surgeries and have worn the boot and I have never experienced more pain being in the boot while walking.

Your question may be a good one for your doctor? If you don't trust what your doctor has prescribed or doesn't feel right, I recommend getting a second opinion.
