Exercises for Healing Metatarsal Fractures
I fractured the fourth and fifth metatarsals back in August. I was in a cast for 4 weeks,and then wore a wooden soled post-op type shoe for another six weeks. Since both bones are healing well, the doctor has given me a toe exercise (a towel is moved by scrunching just the toes on it).
This does not hurt while being done, but I noticed pain when I press on the recovering area afterwards.
Should I continue with the exercises?
I am now wearing a sneaker and otherwise it feels fine.
Thanks for your help!
