Last year I had a fall and in part was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and nerve entrapment along the peroneal area. It apparently has not healed fully and I have been experiencing significant pain when in the boot and flexing hard; more when skiing bumps. The pain is pretty much from where the Tibia/Fib and ankle meet and up about 4"and just to the outside (left) of the tibia bone. I am OK when on the groomed or soft snow but it gets extremely painful if I get into firm bumps or harder variable conditions. Its pretty much when flexing hard in the boot. I do not experience pain when flexed and not wearing a boot.
I went to my PT yesterday and he suggested in trying to get a fitter to come up with a way to keep the boot/liner off my lower shin. I keep the buckle very loose and just use the booster strap now but I was hoping to get some ideas on how to modify the boot to get the shell off that area.
