So You Have A foot Fracture...

Here are some quick tips to maximise your healing: 

#1 Listen to your doctor!

Usually for a foot fracture its no weight to minimal weight on your foot. Typically in a protective shoe, cast, or boot. Not just when you leave the house-- for every step you take, even in the house. 

Increase your protein, vitamin, and mineral intake. Increase antioxidants.

Do not smoke and avoid alcohol use.

Keep your follow up appointments to monitor your fractures progress. If your fracture is not healing in an appropriate amount of time your doctor may prescribe a bone stimulator, cold laser or other treatment modality to healing. 

Last but not least use common sense; If you are permited to walk in your boot that doesn’t mean go hiking etc.
