Crushed Heel

Hey i had a car accident on Feb 4 2007. My heel was crushed and the docters put two steel rods in there.
I have been off my crutches for about three weeks now. I dont have insurance and cant afford to go to PT at the time. Can you give me some tips on what to do to get it back to working good. Is it important that i wear the boot..I dont like it. I can walk around okay without it. My foot is very tender and stiff. Hope you can give me some advice....THANKS

Stabilizing ankle brace increases ankle stability. Perfect for playing basketball, volleyball or everyday activities.
