fracture 5th metatarsal

my 8 yr old daughter fx’d her 5th metatarsal 4wks agoshe was in a cast x 4wks non weight bearing. The cast was removed, but she can’t seem to walk normal. I don’t know it she’s afraid to re-injure it or that it hurts. Can you please tell me if she needs P.T. or is there an exercise I can help her with? What is the usual outcome? Do people resume to their normal walking? Please advise me.

  1. She should be fine…I’ve broken my met twice and I’m fine. How about calling her doc and requesting PT or call a PT dept and see if your state allows direct access. Which means you do not need a doctor script to go see a PT.
