FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is the difference between a cast shoe and a post-op shoe?

Although both are post-op foot support devices, a cast shoe and a post-op shoe are different in function and purpose. As its name implies, a cast shoe replaces your usual shoes when your foot is in a cast. Cast shoes help prevent swelling around the injury and protect from deterioration, wetness, and collisional damage. On the other hand, a post-op shoe like the DH Offloading Post-Op Shoe is valuable lower extremity support following foot, toe, and ankle surgery. This healing shoe provides maximum comfort, promotes a normal gait, and gives protection during post-surgery and rehabilitation. These shoes encourage you to oxygenate the healing tissue by walking more for a speedier recovery.

Also known as cast sandals, cast shoes have an open-toe canvas, hook-and-loop fasteners, and Velcro. In contrast, products like the Semi-Rigid Post-Op Shoes have a semi-rigid body, loop lock closure, nylon upper lining, soft inner lining, and a cushioned rocker sole.

Can I wear a post-op shoe for a broken toe?

Post-op shoes or walking boots are perfect apparel for your broken toe because they have stiff soles that allow you to walk without bending your toe. Also, they shift some of your body weight away from your sore toe. Since your big toe can receive a lot of pressure, a doctor may recommend wearing a high-quality post-op shoe like the Darco OrthoWedge Healing Shoe. Unless your doctor states otherwise, wearing regular shoes with a broken toe is usually not an option.

What does a post-operative shoe do for the healing process?

A post-operative shoe is open-toed because it alters how your foot carries weight, resulting in decreased pain and expanded post-surgery or post-injury movement during the healing process. In addition, this healing shoe restricts your muscle movements to avoid overloading the strain on the tendons, ligaments, and muscles in your feet. This function reduces the likelihood of re-injury by encouraging fast joint recovery. You can ensure your post-operative shoe performs its part by preventing it from getting wet. To accomplish this, you should cover it with plastic and secure it with tape when you shower or take sponge baths. If excessive redness, swelling, or numbness occurs, call your doctor.

Can I drive while wearing a surgical shoe?

Studies have shown that a person's driving ability while wearing a surgical shoe is severely impaired during the first few weeks after surgery, especially in braking response time. These findings are why the general recommendation is to wait at least six weeks after surgery before you drive while wearing a surgical shoe. However, your actual timeline depends on the type of surgery you have and your doctor or physical therapist's recommendations. Some experts advise that it is best to wait longer than your timeline instead of starting back driving too soon. Please check in with your healthcare professional and any applicable local ordinances before driving with a surgical shoe.

Should I sleep in my surgical shoes?

During a surgery recovery period, you must wear surgical shoes, including bedtime. This practice will help you regain motion sooner. However, some people have trouble sleeping in post-surgical shoes and walking boots due to pain, less range of motion, and awkwardness. Restful sleep is vital to the surgical recovery process. So, the best way to get more quality sleep is to take prescription pain killers. In addition, you can get better sleep by lying on your back, elevating your leg to reduce swelling, and sleeping on an air mattress to alleviate uncomfortable pressure points.

Where can I buy surgical shoes?

You can shop for surgical shoes in many online and in-store retail outlets. But Allegro Medical has a select collection of top-quality surgical shoes like the Darco Body Armour Cast Shoe at reasonable prices.
