CAM Walkers and Moon boots

Many people aren’t actually aware that as Podiatrists, we are qualified to fit CAM Walkers and Moon Boots as part of your management plan when treating a fracture or stress reaction.

When you have an injury that requires non-weight bearing or minimal weight bearing these devices are quite handy. They can be used both with or without crutches to offload your site of injury and allow it to heal.

We use CAM Walkers and Moon Boots when managing the following injuries:

  • Stress fractures
  • Stress reactions
  • Non-displaced fractures
  • Off loading post surgery
  • Severe Acute Ankle sprains
  • Ligament tears / strains
  • Heel pain

Your private health insurance provider may provide a rebate on a CAM Walker and Moon Boot when it has been fitted by a podiatrist
