Re: jones fracture

It is possible to have delayed healing or slower than expected healing. A Jones fracture is really tough to heal and often requires surgery due to the unique circulation in this area.

There is no harm in taking calcium supplements, most women do not get enough in their diet anyway. As far as that making you heal any faster, I doubt it. Being non weight bearing is the right thing to do for now. Be patient and see what happens, but also be realistic.

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.
