Ankle Brace

Posted by Ben T. on 10/18/04 at 22:09 (161756)

To bring the arch up, would an ankle brace (cloth ankle brace/support)help or produce to much arch on the plantar?

Thanks,
Ben

I am not a doctor, but I saw your post and recalled a recent post from Richard, C.Ped that addressed this issue in a way that I thought was very helpful because I had wondered about the same thing. Someone had commented on the cloth arch support with velcro straps. Maybe Richard can restate what he said - or maybe you could do a search under 'Richard, C.Ped' to find it; it was within the past two months, as I recall.

I have been wearing a custom ankle brace for almost a year and it failed to correct the tarcal tunnel in my left ankle. so now we are the surgery stage i am a dibetic and only 38 but overweight and i'm very scared about the surgery any information you can pass on will be good. thank you for your time and cooperation in this matter
