We present the case of a 62 years old man who suffered from a fracture of the astragals ten years ago. Since then he complained of pain while walking and at night. He used to be a taxi driver. The pain has led him to search for any other options since rehabilitation and NSAIDs did not improve his symptoms. He went under a total ankle arthroplasty replacement (Figure 1). After surgery, he was provided a foot ankle orthosis and remained not weight bearing for 6 weeks. After that time, he was let to initiate active exercises of the ankle, progressive weight bearing load and walking with canes. Electromagnetic pulsed fields were provided because of pain and edema.
