Bone chip

About 7 months ago I fractured a heel bone and also it was determined that I tore a ligament resulting in a bone chip in the same area.
I was put in a fiberglass cast for 8 weeks and then allowed to begin normally activity.
That same area has continued to bother me ever since the cast was removed in May and this week I went into my orthopedist and he said something about the bone chip moving and put me in a removable walking cast boot for a week to let the joint rest.
It is still continuing to bother me, despite the brace and I am wondering what are typically the next steps in a case like this.

    I’m a 48 year old female, I went dirt biking one week ago, and crash pretty bad, since then I know I crack my ribs, also I have a terrible pain on my spine, that depending on how I’m sitting, or doing other things it’s such a sharp pain that it makes me want to scream. I don’t have health insurance so I can’t go to the doctor, is there anything that I can do at home.
