12 weeks in--Jones fracture-any healing techniques?

I am in my 12th week of healing from a Jones fracture. On my last MD visit (2.5 weeks ago), he said there's "finally some improvement" and filling in on the x-ray. Is there anything you recommend, other than bone stimulation, that I can do to speed up the healing process? I've also been allergic to milk products all my life, and just began taking calcium supplements. Are there any specific calcium supplements, or again- healing techniques-that you suggest? This is extremely frustrating for me as I'm typically an active person. Thanks for your help. -Shira

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
