Are Unna Boots Comfortable
Got diagnosed with navicular accessory type 3 and gave me a boot but its un comfortable should i buy a better on for comfort and faster recovery?
Comfort Is Important: If you are having pain with the accessory navicular it is best to immobilize it via a CAM walker (boot) to prevent you from putting excess pressure on the area. If you are able to tolerate this that would be in your best interest. If it is still painful it would be best to get a more comfortable CAM walker or to ask your doctor about a corticosteroid injection for treatment of pain and swelling. ...Read more

Take the insoles out of your shoes and replace them with ones that have more arch support. The one i recommend most is the spenco polysorb cross-trainer insole.
