Boot fitting for painful inner ankle bone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Morning all,

I have a (newbie) question as my first post. What is the recommended course of boot fitting for pressure, and resulting pain, on my inner ankle bone (medial malleolus). My right side is considerably more pronounced than my left and is causing some grief.

I am no proposing to attempt it myself, but rather would like to know what to expect when I go see the local shop.


Cheers.

Make sure you deal with a boot fitter that will assess your issues in a patient and timely manner. That said, I would have your boot fitter check:

1) shell fit
2) liner fit
3) sock choice
4) foot alignment issues (over pronator)
5) foot physiology issues (large, bony medial malleous)

Your boot fitter may choose any of the following with a proper shell fit:

1) different sock
2) pad the area (above and below)
3) custom or trim to fit footbed
4) blow out shell or grind shell in ankle area
5) work on liner in ankle area
6) Heel lifting (not my favorite choice)
