Speed Up Your Recovery With This….
When it comes to treating foot pain the road to recovery can seem like a never ending journey of ups and downs. Oftentimes this is because the foot never gets proper time
to heal as it is constantly being used to keep us upright and get us from point A to point B. One way to counteract this problem is to decrease the load on the foot. The most common way of doing this would be through the use of a walking boot or using crutches to completely unload the foot.
Another lesser known option for patients is something called a hands-free single crutch or knee crutch. It is a great option for patients who live an active lifestyle and need the use of both hands to get the job done! We have one of these in our Beverly clinic if you want to give it a try. Although this does require excellent balance and mobility, it frees up the ability to use one’s arms while staying off a healing foot.
If you or someone you care about needs help “getting off their feet”, then we would be happy to set up a free consultation to talk about options.
