Weight of air boot damaging to ankle?
Hi, does anyone else worry that the heavy air boot/ walking boot may be doing harm to their injury? My boot feels like it's pulling on my ankle when I wear it, and I feel clicking and popping in the foot/ankle area. It feels like the weight of the boot is moving stuff around that shouldn't be.
I am pretty sure it's the correct size; the next one down was way too short. I tighten it up pretty good when it's on.
I also have this feeling with my cryo cuff boot (cold therapy boot) but it is full of water... I try not to move around too much when that's on my foot..
I am recovering from calcaneus repair surgery with six screws in my right heel. No plate, which also seems unusual since it sounds like most others with this injury/surgery get a plate put in.
