Re: ankle/top of foot pain

Without examining your foot, I can not answer specifically.

Pain on the top as you describe can be possibly a nerve entrapment or a tendonitis. One thing I would consider trying would be to immobilize your foot and ankle in a cast boot. I would also need to take a look at the orthotics that were made and the shoes you wear them in.

Have you tried a clog with a rocker bottom type sole? Have you tried using ice or a topical anti-inflammatory such as Sportscream, Flexall, Biofreeze, Theragesic etc.?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
