Man in the Moon...: CRPS can be very frustrating, for both the patient and the doctor, to treat. Physical therapy and ambulation are necessary components in the treatment. Stress fractures can also involve ongoing protection to resolve. If wearing a moon boot offers you relief from both of these conditions, then bully for you. Continue to wear it.
