"When I tore a ligament in my foot almost 2 months ago!” the caption stated. “Thank heavens for Dr Dustin who whipped me back in shape with no surgery needed! 4th day of working out since it happened... Man does it feel good to be back on the grind!!! Wahoo!!!"
The shoes you wear after having foot or ankle surgery can have a big effect on your recovery. For more information about post-operative footwear, speak to podiatrist Dr. Charles Chapel of Chapel Podiatry. Dr. Chapel can assess the progress you are making and recommend a type of shoe to assist in the healing process.
Choosing the Right Shoes During Post-Operative Surgery
Finding the right shoes to wear after surgery is vital during the recovery process. Many don’t know what to do after surgery, therefore consulting a podiatrist, is important. This way you will know what to wear without the worries.
Surgeries are often performed on patients with bone deformities or other illnesses that can’t be treated through traditional means. This is usually the final decision one would take if no other option is available. After surgery is completed, allowing yourself the proper recovery time is essential.
Conditions Which Require Surgery
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome- bunions which deform the large toe bones and cannot be corrected with other methods.
Ligament tears- require surgery to alleviate pain and restore mobility.
The Right Footwear
Orthopedic shoes– Shoes that offer a rubber sole to prevent any possibility of slipping while foot related balance and support is reduced post-surgery. These shoes are only meant to be worn post-surgery, and not all the time.
Wider and large heel– These shoes come with a raised heel and have the same orthopedic functions. Although very effective, they can run a bit more expensive if not covered by insurance.
Athletic shoes– Some people don’t need special footwear and settle for comfortable athletic shoes.
