I threw the mon boot away at week two after sustaining a Webber A fibula fracture of the ankle. I replaced it with the Malleoloc Ankle Brace. The moon boot did not hug my ankle within the brace and cause further injury to the fracture.
I have used it in various ways as I transition through my recovery. My recovery has been fast considering I am 70 years old. I am at week 4 1/2 and walking in Brooks shoes using most of my weight on the foot with the crutches while only using the compression sock. I have no pain, no swelling and with better flexibility. I was taking a risk and I am glad I did. When I go in for my 6 week X-ray, I will be in runners while everyone else will still be in their bulky moon boots.
Hi Lori, thanks for leaving a review! We're glad the MalleoLoc Ankle Brace is helping you recover so quickly from your fibula ankle fracture :) With an anatomically shaped design and system of splints, straps, and compression, it's an excellent choice for tackling severe ankle injuries and associated issues of swelling, pain, and instability. Best of luck with your 6-week X-ray! Cheers
