Re: Jones Fracture

A bone stimulator would be a thought here. Because they are so costly, many insurance companies make us wait until a long period of time with no demonstrated healing has occurred before they OK it.

As far as a greater chance of refracturing- I am sorry I have no statistics on this and I am not aware that there are any on this.

Returning to competition depends on when the fracture has a stable union. That is almost certainly more than the expected 6 weeks eveyone thinks of when they have a broken bone.

You might discuss a possible bone stimulator with your doctor. Be prepared to fight with your insurance company.

Good luck.
