fracture of 5th Metetarsal - How to reduce swelling
I twisted my foot stepping off a step and was diagnosed with a fracture of 5th Metetarsal.
It was 3 days before I had it x-rayed.
My foot is still (4 days) swollen a lot. I keep it elavated when I can - Should I use ice or heat?
What is normal time for swelling to subside?
thank you very much

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
