Jones Fracture

I was diagnosed with a Jones Fracture about 9 weeks ago. I am due to visit the Dr at 10 weeks. The question that I have is why did the Dr not recommend surgery knowing that I am an active person. Have you ever seen where an active person has healed from this injury and did not have surgery and was able to return to athletic activites. Thanks for your help.

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.
