Exercises for Healing Metatarsal Fractures

I fractured the fourth and fifth metatarsals back in August. I was in a cast for 4 weeks,and then wore a wooden soled post-op type shoe for another six weeks. Since both bones are healing well, the doctor has given me a toe exercise (a towel is moved by scrunching just the toes on it). This does not hurt while being done, but I noticed pain when I press on the recovering area afterwards. Should I continue with the exercises? I am now wearing a sneaker and otherwise it feels fine. Thanks for your help!

The built-in arch stabilizer provides support for greater stability.
