Re: Problem with ankle fracture

My husband fractured his ankle 3 weeks ago.The doctor diagonised it as a spiral fracture.He was adviced to wear a boot at all times.the boot was too heavy and was paining his ankle.He discontinued the use of the boot and uses crutches to move around.The swelling in the ankle has reduced a little but has not gone completely.The calf is also swollen.What advice can you givr him about how to take care of his ankle
Thank you.

Bio Skin compression shorts offer a significant advance over other brands. They supply superior compression to the groin and hamstring without the bulk of the typical compression shorts.
