Patients suffering from a fracture or soft tissue injury to the ankle or foot may be required to spend a period of time in a moon boot/fracture boot. Moon boots have multiple uses in the medical field from conservative management of stable fractures to short term stability following surgery.
We, at Inmotion Orthotics, have a variety of fracture boots available to fit depending on your injury, stability required and budget. We will ensure that the boot we fit you with is suitable to your injury to give you piece of mind that you are correctly following your doctor’s recommendations to the fullest.
The biggest benefit of a moon boot is the ability to maintain your mobility during the healing process to reduce the impact on your lifestyle. This ability to walk within the boot should always be discussed with your treating doctor prior to doing so, as the initial healing stage, may be unsafe for you to put weight on your leg initially.
