Walking Boots and CAM Walkers Provide Incredible Support
There are more
bones in the human foot than there are in the rest of the entire body. With so
many bones, it's a bit amazing that we don't all injure our feet much more
often. Thankfully, when we do injure our feet, National Brace and Splint offers a range of CAM walker
fracture boots to help see us through. The CAM boots offered by National Brace
and Splint provide significant protection for your feet after an injury without
limiting your ability to walk comfortably. Talk to your doctor after a foot
injury to find out if one of National Brace and Splint's walker boots is the
right choice for your recovery.
What is a CAM
CAM stands for
controlled ankle movement. A CAM boot is a great choice for helping your foot
recover after a break, a sprain, or an inflammation of one of the tendons or
ligaments in your feet. Whether you've broken your big toe or shattered your
ankle, in many cases a walking boot
is the perfect choice for giving your foot the stability and immobilization
that it needs to heal without limiting your ability to walk.
CAM boots were
originally developed in the 1980s and have come a long way in their design and
development. Most CAM boots now offer a limited range of motion appropriate to
the injury they are created for and can be adjusted over time as the injury
begins to heal. CAM boots are an excellent alternative to crutches which can
become smelly, tiresome, and difficult to maneuver. Check out National Brace
and Splint's complete range of walking boots to get a better idea of what is
available to you after a foot injury:
Fracture Boot - This style of medical boot
offers significant stability after suffering a break or sprain in the ankle or
foot. CAM walker fracture boots come in a variety of sizes and styles so that
you can choose the right walker boot for your specific injury and comfort
preferences. These boots even come in a wide variety of colors so that you can
have a little style while recovering from your injury.
Air Walking Boot Foot Brace - An air
boot has the added benefit of including an air pump within the boot
that can be adjusted by the patient. This additional feature allows the patient
to adjust the compression of the boot to the ideal level of comfort. Like most
fracture boots, air walking foot braces feature rocker soles that are designed
to help promote a natural gait. This feature helps prevent the boot from
causing any strain on the knees, hips, or lower back -- common side effects of
Air Cast Boot - National Brace and Splint's line of
air cast boots offer maximum stability for more severe foot injuries. These
walking casts feature a fixed upright position and come in both tall and short
heights. Choose the boot designed to offer maximum support for your specific
injury in order to heal as quickly as possible.
Kids Orthopedic CAM Boot - It's
especially important for children to have a walker boot that perfectly contours
to their foot and immobilizes their injury in order to ensure that as their
feet heal, they will continue to grow and develop without any irregularity.
Children's feet aren't as strong or developed as adult feet, so they require
special protection which can be afforded by one of National Brace and Splint's CAM walker
boots for children.
Diabetic/Achilles Walker Boots - This
special line of orthopedic
boot is specifically designed to help offload the pressure put on
plantar ulcers commonly found in people with diabetes. Many of these walker
boots can also be used to help alleviate pressure on the Achilles tendon which
can cause pain in the heel when walking. By stabilizing the foot and ensuring
that pressure is unloaded evenly, these boots can significantly alleviate pain
and help people with diabetes or Achilles problems recover more quickly from
there foot injuries.
Hinged CAM Walker Boot - Hinged
CAM Walker boots are specifically designed to support the foot after acute
ankle sprains, soft tissue injuries to the foot, stable fractures, as well as
after surgery for Achilles tendon repairs. This orthopedic boot offers a
greater range of motion than most CAM walker boots and is recommended only for
specific types of foot injuries. Because this type of orthopedic boot can offer
more flexibility, it tends to be a more comfortable option then fixed upright
boots when appropriate.
Caring for Yourself Properly After a Foot Injury
cast or a CAM walker is the best way to let your foot heal naturally
and effectively after an injury. A walking cast offers much greater mobility
than a traditional cast and is usually a less expensive alternative. While foot
injuries can be painful and inconvenient, they don't have to stop you from
enjoying your life. Find the right walking cast or fracture boot for your foot
injury and experience nearly the same level of mobility that you did before
your injury while allowing your foot to heal comfortably and quickly.
