A calcaneal fracture typically comes from a high-impact situation or activity, such as a car crash. This fracture is potentially disabling, and often causes persistent pain in the heel. Like most bone fractures, it can take a long time to heal. This is why your doctor may recommend custom orthotics to help with the pain as the fracture heals.
If you suffer from heel pain, you aren’t alone. Of all the foot-related ailments reported by Americans, heel pain is by far the most common. Unsure whether your heel pain is caused by a fracture? Here are some of the most common symptoms.
Symptoms of a calcaneal fracture
After a fracture, a helpful thing to do in the healing process’s later stages is wear shoes that support the healing process. A good pair of shoes for this would be reliable, supportive and comfortable. Custom orthotics are inserts made to be worn with plenty of shoes, and they can help ensure that your shoes are the best ones to wear while your calcaneal fracture heals.
