Other treatments

Ankle Supports

There are many different types of ankle braces and your physiotherapist can help you find the best option for you.

Footwear adjustment

Supportive boots, modified shoes or corrective insoles may help.

Walking aids

A walking stick or cane can be very helpful. You will only be offered surgical treatment if most or all of the above non-surgical measures have failed to control your symptoms, at which point you are considered to have ‘end-stage ankle arthritis’.
