Re: Fractured 5th metatarsal

Yes, No and possibly.

I can only answer in general terms, as I have not examined his foot or seen his X-rays.

It is reasonable to expect an uncomplicated fracture to heal well enough to allow activity by 6-8 weeks but there are always exceptions.

It is unrealistic to expect to speed up the process. Alot of things happen when healing occurs. There is a timeline of necessary processes that must occur.

Kids generally seem to heal faster than adults, but there are always exceptions.


You need to discuss these questions with his doctor who has seen his x-ray and his fractured metatarsal

Softens and remove corns in a most comfortable way. It is ideal to help relieve pain on a toe or finger affected by corns, blebs, blisters, hammertoes, calluses and digital traumas.
