Re: Common treatment for stress fracture

The treatments can vary depending on the individual patient as well as where the stress fracture occurs. I have treated metatarsal stress fractures with a little as a firm soled shoe all the way up to a cast or cast boot and non weight bearing with crutches. Other bones might require other treatments.

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.
