How long ago was the accident? I would recommend more physical therapy. I’m a trainer and there really aren’t alot of support options that im aware of that can aid that much with such an injury. As far as tapping, do you feel it really helps? If so, maybe learn how to effectively tape and support oe you need it. I hate to say it, but that’s an extensive injury for anyone, particularly an athlete who continues to do high impact on the injury site. Its always tough as an athlete, I was a high school and college x-country and track runner and I suffered a compete IT band tear that completely derailed me. i still run and am able to marathon but not without pain and continued issues. I couldn’t imagine what skeletal damage ontop of that would do. 

My only recommendation would be to strengthen the muscles and tendons that support the area vs always tap and pray. As far as bone loss, if you’ve got plates and depending on how well the bone sutured when it healed you’ll likely still always have issues 😕 sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I wouldnt give up and continue searching for an orthopedic and therapist who is conmited to helping you.

rosesareyellowandpink:  I used to tape my feet for dance when I was a teen.  I actually found after some practice I was better than the ‘experts’ because I could feel as I was applying it.
