Re: 5th Metatarsal Fracture

All fractures of the 5th metatarsal are NOT created equal. The non-displaced avulsion fracture should heal with cast immobilization. A displaced fracture will likely require surgery. A Jones fracture will almost always require surgery and possibly a bone stimulator. Fractures of the shaft, neck and head are a different story too.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
