Resources for Patients
Having a foot and ankle issue can pose problems for you in your everyday life. With every-step you may be in discomfort, even to the point where you are unable to place your foot into the ground. Furthermore, you may have an issue (fracture, post-surgery, etc) that demands a period of non-weightbearing. To that end, below are some helpful patient resources and tools to get you through the process of healing.
