I spent a year in an air cast and ended up with surgery on the tendon that holds my ankle bones together. Somehow I had irritated the tendon and it was inflamed and infected. After surgery, I spent 3 months in the air cast and braces doing rehab. The doctor told me to continue rehab and to be careful what shoes I wore for the next year. I continued to have pain and swelling no matter what shoes I had on until I got this arch brace. It has done wonders for my walking pain and the swelling. I am 8 months past surgery at this point and rarely have any swelling or pain. The only complaint is that the pocket for the extra pad to support the arch won't hold the pad. I have lost every single one that I have put in it. I wish the manufacturers would correct this and it would be perfect. thanks
