I would not ever suggest that to a patient. A fracture needs to heal, not be continually re-stressed. What do you think caused it in the first place?
Personally I am not a fan of Aircasts, orthopedists seem to like them though. I use other removeable cast boots.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
