Foot Stress Fracture Boot
This walking boot for a stress fracture in the foot bones (metatarsals) has metal reinforced uprights that provide ultimate protection and support to the ankle and foot. When these areas are injured, they are vulnerable to additional damage. This stress fracture foot boot keeps this from occurring.
Metal is not the most comfortable material to have rubbing against one’s skin. Therefore, this metatarsal stress fracture boot has a deluxe foam liner that acts as a buffer between the hard components of the boot and one’s skin.
The liner of this boot for a stress fracture in the foot does not enclose the toe. The open-toe design increases the breathability of the boot for metatarsal stress fractures and it prevents any rubbing of the toes against the end of the boot. This also makes it an ideal walking boot for stress fracture of the toes.
The footbed of this foot brace for metatarsal stress fracture care is wide to allow for swelling or bandaging and simply to make the foot orthotic more comfortable. There is also an extra strap for additional padding at the ankle where more movement is required.
The bottom of the boot is rounded in an arched rocker fashion. This enables one to move about in a more natural, energy-efficient way than one might in a flat-bottomed boot. The low-profile of this walking boot is also helpful to that end. This particular BraceAbility stress fracture boot is 11 inches tall and surprisingly lightweight.
Besides stress fracture foot treatment, this cam (controlled ankle movement) walker boot can also help with strains and sprains of the foot or ankle, diabetic ulcers, after a bunion surgery and for other less serious foot and ankle injuries.
