Sesmoid foot problem

My daughter has a sesmoid fracture, Plays tennis at a college in SC and was out last school yr. We have sent her to many Drs. and basically get the same opinion that there is nothing really to do, a boot, etc., will not help and it has not. That she needs to not run or exercise for a while and maybe it will go away it has not gone away after allowing it to rest over the summer. They all say operating is not an option at her age 21. She is very upset starting into her senior yr. unable to play and is contemplating surgery. Do you have any advice I will send her any where there is some help available.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
