Stress Fracture of the heel

Posted by Kathy B on 2/26/01 at 19:04 (039932)

Dear Dr.
My foot doctor believes that I may have a stress fracture behind
my heel spur. I will be having a bone scan this week.
What are your suggestions for heeling a stress fracture?
Thank you, Kathy

Casting of the foot and ankle for about six weeks. Physical therapy if you can get away with a boot cast.
