Arch is sore in boot

Hi All,

Anyone else have this problem? My arch is starting to get sore in my airboot even though I am not WB at all and move around w/a knee scooter and crutches. It is only alleviated with flexing my ankle around.

Any help is appreciated. Turns out I was a week ahead in my brain and I’m still actually 2 weeks before my Dr’s follow-up appt and 4-week mark:(

  1. Some docs don’t allow passive dorsiflexion until 6 weeks and that would probably be helpful for your arch pain. Try to do as much active dorsiflexion as you can and maybe have a friend stretch your big toe into extension as well. That should help a little.


  2. I have a custom footbed in my snowboard boots which I transferred into my aircast… it seemed to help a bit with the arch & heel pain.

  3. Dr. told me it is caused by the position of your foot. Sometimes trying to stretch the toes help. The position of the foot causes the plantar fascia to act up, which connects from your heel to the ball of your foot. I still have trouble with mine now, I have been in the boot and reruptured then back to cast, now in the boot again. The bottom of my foot at sometimes is even numb, but it does improve over time as they start lowering your foot. Hang in there.

  4. I had surgery about 4 weeks ago and had 6 inches of tendon replaced with tendon from
    upper leg. I was in a soft cast for 2 weeks and now a hard cast. It sounds like be in a
    cast for 4 to 6 months. The doc wants it healed completly before going to a boot. Says
    it will be a year before back to normal. I got the cast wet watering the lawn and now
    cast is wet inside and not good. Going to doc this Monday to take off cast and redo
    with new cast. Anyone have a tendon replacement surgery and how long did it take to
    heal in your case.

  5. Thank you all for replying. The soreness is alleviated when I do my gentle circles and DF exercises!
