Why an Orthopedic Walking Boot VS a Cast For Your Healing Journey

In this Facebook Live: All Things Orthopedic, Annette de Lancey (Founder and Owner of CastCoverz!) speaks with Dr. Scott Hoffinger, Medical Director of OrthoPediatrics, and Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, about why orthopedic walking boots are prescribed! 

Not all broken bones, sprains or soft tissue injuries require a cast; sometimes an orthopedic walking boot is the best and most comfortable option for a patient as they heal. 

Why are so many orthopedic walking boots prescribed now?

When you have a broken bone in your foot, you need a firm base to step on, but casts are not always necessary (24/7 support), this is where an orthopedic walking boot can be helpful. Boots are also good for sprains and soft tissue injuries. 

Orthopedic walking boots can be beneficial but wear them with caution, if you are supposed to wear them all the time when you are standing up, comply with that. They can be just as effective as casts, but they can be taken off for sleeping and showers. 

Check out some of our orthopedic walking boot accessories like Bootz! and Sleeping Bagz! to provide fashion and comfort during your healing journey.

How to Dress Up Your Cast or Boot From Drab to Fab

We get it, casts can clash (and sometimes trash) your clothing. 

Owner and founder of CastCoverz! Annette de Lancey started creating cast covers over a decade ago to not only stop the snagging and the scratches but also give casts, braces, splints, crutches, and walking boots fashion, function, and FUN! 

One of our customers, YouTuber “Heart Style”, who creates fun fashion and unboxing YouTube videos, did an amazing job showing how you can dress up your cast to match your sense of style. Our 24 Karat Armz! is featured in her YouTube video (5:32) styled with a beautiful pink dress. Watch the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLc3DF6EKH4

Accidents happen to everyone, even the fashionistas out there. 

We want you to feel better, so you heal better, and look good while you’re doing it!
