5th metatarsal fracture
I fractured my 5th metatarsal about 5 weeks ago playing basketball. The doctor told me that it was a classic Jones break. After 3 weeks I got recasted and the dr. said it was healing quite quickly and would not require a screw which he warned me might happen. I am due to get my cast off in a week and was wondering if there are specfic exercises I could do for a quicker recovery. What kind of timeline can I expect to go back to playing baseball. I know basketball will be much longer.
