Description: Bum foot: Chaz Bono arrived in Beverly Hills on Thursday wearing a black walking brace on his footFormer Dancing With The Stars competitor Chaz Bono has been enduring severe pain for months. And it continues to be painful even during the extreme exercises he tolerated while contending in the popular ABC reality dance competition. The celebrity has endured an ankle sprain a few months ago but never sought treatment for it.

Recently, Bono was spotted in Beverly Hills stepping out of a vehicle with a noticeable amount of pain being seen on his face. He was struggling as it took him a long time to get out of the driver’s seat. The star was also seen wearing a foot brace to help secure his ankle and provide some slight comfort when walking. Bono claims that his recent 60-pound weight loss as well as the strenuous workouts that came with it caused more pain to his ankle. “It's taken a pounding” the star said.

What are the Symptoms?

· Mild to moderate bruising
· Limited mobility
· Discoloration of the skin, depending on severity

Is there a Way to Care for my Ankle at Home?

Self-care for ankle sprains includes propping the ankle up and keeping it elevated, applying ice packs as needed, and remaining off your feet. Some may also find that wrapping the ankle with an ACE bandage and taking over-the-counter pain relievers are helpful.

Description: Back in the game: David Loo wears a support inside a special orthopaedic boot so he can play sports13-year-old David Loo was born with hemiplegia, a form of cerebral palsy that severely weakened the right side of his body. As a result of Loo’s health his is mobility is largely dependent on an orthotic boot. Without the plastic support David’s right foot and ankle turn inward, causing him to walk with pain on the side of his foot. His special orthopedic boot holds his foot and ankle in place so he can freely participate in sports.

David Loo shows that foot and ankle orthotics can allow anyone to regain full mobility. This is proof that foot conditions are something that can be overcome.

Dr. Salma can work with you on treatment options for your foot conditions that might require the use of ankle-foot orthotics.

Ankle Foot Orthotics and What They Do

Usually used for the foot or ankle, orthotics provide support for weakened limbs or help direct the limbs so they may function properly. These orthotics can help strengthen muscles as well as benefitting muscles that need to be loosened or lengthened. Usually the orthosis is designed in a rigid L shape that is contoured to the calf and flesh colored in order to blend with the patient’s appearance.

When are Orthotics Necessary?

Orthotics are prescribed when someone is diagnosed with diseases that affect the musculature such as polio and multiple sclerosis. However, ailments such as arthritis and stroke, or foot conditions that “toe in”, may also require orthotics.

As opposed to metal braces of previous years, modern orthotics have improved tremendously. Many of today’s orthotics are manufactured with lightweight plastics and other advanced materials to provide new levels of support and comfort.
