Calcaneal Fracture Support
Calcaneal fractures are fractures in the heel bone. They often occur during high energy collisions, such as jumping off a wall or motor vehicle accidents.
Calcaneal fractures often damage the subtalar joint. This causes stiffness in the joint and may make walking on uneven ground difficult.
Conservative management may include:
- Below knee fiberglass cast
- CAM (Controlled Ankle Movement) walker
- Custom foot orthoses (with cushioned heel)
To determine the most appropriate treatment for you, we recommend booking an initial consultation to discuss your concerns in more detail.
