Walking Boot

Walking boots are commonly recommended following ankle, foot and lower leg injuries.

Injuries that can utilise a walking boot include ankle, foot and shin (tibia or fibula) fractures, ankle sprains, achilles injuries or calf muscle tears.

Your doctor or physiotherapist will recommend a walking boot to you if they feel that this is the most appropriate treatment.

Why are Walking Boots Recommended?

Walking boots provide you with more mobility than a traditional cast.

Many times a person who suffers an ankle, foot or lower leg injury will benefit from a walking boot. This walking boot is strapped to the affected leg and will help immobilise it in order for proper healing to occur.

The intention of a walking boot is to keep you as mobile as possible, while still protecting the injured structure.

It is important to properly wear the walking boot to ensure that the leg or foot heals correctly.

Specific advice should be directed to your doctor of physiotherapist.
