Designed to provide support after a trauma or injury, moon boots help to secure the foot and ankle and aid in the rehabilitation of certain injuries. At Running Science, we provide acute lower-limb rehabilitation services, including moon boot supply (with warranty), fitting and ongoing treatments for many conditions. Our experts at Running Science will work with you to ensure that you get the best possible outcome from your moon boot and, importantly, on-going management.

A well-fitted moon boot is comfortable and easy to wear. It immobilises the foot, allowing the injury to heal, and helps you get back on your feet faster. Read our most frequently asked questions and see if your condition might require a moon boot fitted by Running Science. 

What conditions require a moon boot?

Moon boots (also known as CAM boots) are suitable for several different injuries, normally all associated with the lower limbs of the body. In most instances, moon boots are required for injuries that have resulted out of a single trauma event or gradual overload.

At Running Science, the most common reasons we see for moon boot fittings are:

  • Stress fractures
  • Stress reactions
  • Tendon ruptures
  • Ligament ruptures
  • Plantar fascia tears
  • … and more

How tight should a moon boot be?

A moon boot should fit snugly to prevent excess movement but not so tight to cause discomfort. Improperly fitted moon boots or CAM boots can increase the chances of DVT due to reduced blood flow and cause discomfort in other parts of the body. This is why we recommend a fitting by our clinical team.

Are there different types of moon boots?

There are different styles of moon boots suited to different injuries and rehabilitation. Your Running Science clinician will be involved in the process of selecting and fitting the most appropriate moon boot. Certain styles of moon boots for example, are best suited to specific injuries and rehabilitation. Moon boot size selection is also critical. Choosing an incorrect moon boot can create unnecessary pain, extend recovery and present complications. We also provide the best quality, industry recommended moon boots, as inferior products may inhibit the healing process.

Do I need a referral for a moon boot?
