Default Anyone have issues with their heel bone?

I broke my left heel (calcaneus) 11 years ago and have subtalar arthritis as a result. My ankle gets more and more sore as the day goes on to the point where it eventually feels like nothing is there.

I've started riding switch more to help (i'm regular footed), but am curious if anyone else on the board has gone through this? If so, how have you managed? Did you change your style at all?

At 33, I refuse to let this keep me from riding. But I had a major setback Sunday (couldn't walk after I pulled my boot off), so I feel like it may be time to try something different...other than not snowboarding of course
