Hello fellow fusion!!! Mine was in '01. Fell down flight of stairs and when I reached the bottom the sole of my foot was on my calf....crushed my tib and fib ...all metal now with some flexion and extension. I spent ooodles in PTand orthotics and I am VERY heavy, so here is my suggestion to you as I am not a DR.... just enjoy playing it with my hubby
You need support and the best shoe for this is new balance 623. The next is to gain strength in that ankle so you can excercise, stand on a step with a handrail for saftey and place both feet on the step so the edge of the step is just past the ball of your foot almost 2 the arch and do heel lifts 10 times then ice a total of 3 reps. ....take a long towel and spread out lenght wise, sit down and use your toes to scrunch the towel under your foot...the whole length of it 3times.
This came to me from a sports dr. I took one of my kids to and he saw my limp and said point blank " you wanna fix that?" PLEEEESE IM me if need be but keep me up on how it works...takes some time but it did help
