Re: Walking boot after broken ankle
I absolutely love my gel ice packs! I have a couple from various injuries and such over the years. They are so nice to have to put on any bumps or bruises you or your family members may get. I purchased a really nice, expensive one almost 15 years ago. It has payed for itself many times over between all the ankle injuries, knee surgery and back problems. However you can purchase some that are smaller and less expensive. The nice thing about them is that they are soft and relatively light weight, they mold well to your injured part and can be used over and over again for years.
I am NWB, so I don't have any suggestions regarding a shoe that will work well with the boot, but I am curious to know what will work once I can walk.
I am glad to hear that you have already gained some rom! Keep up the home exercises and take care.
