broken 5th metatarsel- 3 months not yet healed

Hi,
My girlfriend broke this bone on her foot 3 months ago.
She went into a walking cast for a while, now on sneakers.
She started a bone stimulator now at the 3 month mark.
My questions are:1) Some doctors say, yes walk on it.
It is good for it.
And some doctors have said walk on it as little as possible.
What is your opinion and why?2) Are ther any exercises/ vitamin or mineral supplements that may help?3) Any other advise?
Thank you,John

  1. Bone stimulators can be very useful, if hte bone has the potential to heal. If this is a Jones fracture, it might be a long road.As far as nutritional support- a well balanced diet with Vitamin C and calicium are helpful. You can consider researching some other alternative sources- herbals, homeopathy etc.
