Re: Jones Fracture....Going crazy

I have 2 patients at this present time with a Jones fracture. One just got a bone stimulator after 90 days of no bone healing and we are waiting for the 90 day period on the other. I get asked this all the time by these patients. My research comes up sparse for the success of bone stim and Jones fractures specifically. However the one I use (DonJoy) suggests an 85% success rate. My rep from Rehabilicare actually did the research on this. He is a former orthopedic P.A. so he is very objective. I have told my patients there is no guaranty, even with surgery. Either way it is a long haul.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
