Immobilisation Boots

Home / Immobilisation Boots

Immobilisation BootsCommonly known as ‘Moon boots’ these are used to completely unload a foot when the injury is either very significant or very painful. The most common heel pain injury this is required for is either a calcaneal fracture/stress fracture or a plantar fascial tear/rupture. This level of injury requires complete unloading to resolve so if you have high level pain or can’t walk properly you should suspect one of these injuries and see one of our podiatrists for immediate treatment. If left untreated fractures and tears don’t improve – they just get worse!
