Zero Wedge in boot questions

March 18, 2013

I have been walking around fine without crutches and I am due to be zero wedges tomorrow, according to my losing a wedge each week scheduled. I don’t see the physio until Thursday, I wonder if I should wait until then?

In fact should I go to zero wedges at all because I remember the doctor mentioned when I go to 2 shoes I should have a wedge put in my shoes.

Anyone know? THANKS!

    I’d say try 0 wedges at bedtime and sleep in the boot. If your first steps feel OK, keep going. That way you’ll introduce the new “stretch” hours before you add your FW to it, which seems much safer — and more likely to work well — than doing both together.

    You’re right that it seems “funny” and paradoxical to walk FWB booted at neutral, then to go “backwards” into 2 shoes with a heel wedge or two. But many patients do exactly that. UWO didn’t, but some of their patients went “backwards” onto crutches when going to 2 shoes. Walking in shoes is hard and scary and slow at first, so it seems reasonable to get some help.

    I found the wedge in the shoe helped me walk without a limp easier. I was soon able to walk for fitness and things improved vastly. I actually had 2 wedges at first and when I could walk at a good pace without a limp I took one out and so on. My shoes were good ASICS with a higher heel than toe as well.

    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. doradztwo prawne
