Re: Jones Fracture-base 5th metatarsal

ME TOO!! Also, no insurance, given a stiff shoe to wear for the weekend. It was 5 days before a foot doctor could see me and he gave me a choice of a permanent cast or a removable one. I opted for the removable space boot. He told me to ride a stationary bike to increase blood circulation. From what I've read, it might not even heal (?!!) and surgery will have to be the answer...(no insurance?!!) I have to go back in 3 weeks to make another deposit in this doc's bank account...
How is your foot now?

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
