post surgery

i fractured my left tibia at the medial malleolus and received ORIF where two screws were inserted at the mortise joint. I have been put in a short leg cast. What exactly is the timeline for recovery, ie. when I am able to put pressure, walk, and run. Will I be able to be as active on that foot as I was prior to the accident?

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
