HM Plant Honda's Cal Crutchlow has been given an air-cast (also known as a Beckham Boot, not not her...) to aid his recovery from the injuries he sustained when he crashed at Oulton Park.
Coventry City's first team physio Damien Delahunty took a look at Crutchlow's injuries, which include damage to ankle ligaments, and recommended the treatment.
Crutchlow said: "I’ve dislocated my right ankle and have a slight fracture to it, as well but it’s the damage to the tendons and the ligaments that’s the problem. I’ve ruptured the front two ligaments in the ankle so the back one is holding things together at the moment.
"I was in a cast, but my friends from Coventry City Football Club have helped out big time. Damien Delahunty the first team physio gave me an air-cast, otherwise known as a ‘Beckham Boot’ from when David Beckham broke his metatarsal in his foot. The benefit of the air-cast is that you can inflate it to the pressure you need, but also remove it for when you need a bath or physio.
During the week I had 20 pin-pricks put into the injury to let the excess blood out – that’s not fun to watch, but the good news is that the swelling has gone down and that yesterday Toby Branfoot, BSB’s medical delegate has said he’s happy with the ankle and that I should be able to ride."
