metatarsal stress fractures

My daughter was diagnosed with five stress fractures on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd metatarsal. She is in a boot, but is a competitive cheerleader and has been taking off the boot to compete. The area swells up more, she puts ice on it, and bears the pain. My question: Can she cause more damage to these fractures or will she just prolong the healing process? Her doctor seemed to think it was okay, but the pain would be unbearable.
