Re: Broken foot rehab

My fourth metatarsal was broken in two places after a severe stubbing. My surgery removed chips and ground bone. I have had significant pain,stiffness, and edema for six months post op. My dr. treated me with cortisone, special tape, and drained the soft edema. It is simply not improving- what physical therapy/exercises can I do-back pain is now a severe problem also. My physical gait is altered, I also had broken toes on the other foot previously.

Allows full dexterity of the fingers and thumb, yet limits wrist flexion. Longer length for greater wrist control and increased immobilization. Latex Free.
