A few days ago a guy named Vito sent in a great question.“I was in a walking boot for 6 weeks due to ankle fracture, no surgery. I am out of the boot and doing physical therapy to restore flexibility and strength. Can I safely being running again after a period of time?"This is a very common question I hear from runners simply because one of the most common treatments for running injures like stress fractures, stable ankle fractures, Achilles tendinitis, peroneal tendinitis and even chronic plantar fasciitis is a fracture walking boot.The truth is that a fracture walking boot is very effective at immobilizing the foot and ankle. That immobilization can certainly help many common running injuries heal faster.Today on the Doc On the Run Podcast we’re talking about when you can start running after wearing a fracture boot.
