Default Re: foot fracture advice

All I can say is start running on soft surfaces(Grass) and see how you go, if you feel any pain then don't push it.

Better to take a couple of extra weeks getting up to speed than to break it again overdoing it.

i had a dislocated ankle with a fracture in the tibia. hard cast for 2 months with crutches. while i was in my cast, i could slowly walk with a limp, and as soon as i got out of it, i went to play ball. however, i regret doing that and my injury lasted for like 2 years almost, and even now (3 years later) it still bothers me a mildly.

make sure you go to rehab. my foot doctor didn't send me to rehab, and i didn't even know about it. he just told me some exercises to do at home. say **** that, and request to be sent to a rehab clinic. and even if you feel fine, take it slow.

i felt fine after a couple months, but since my calf on the injured leg was a lot smaller than my other calf, i started getting tendonitis on like my knee areas. and flexibility is very important. I had to go to a physical therapist for my various tendonitis, and they told me to make sure i increase my muscle strenght back to original, as well as gaining full range of motion (flexibility) before restarting any intense exercising.

Default Re: foot fracture advice

I had a similar thing happen playing basketball... Just a clean break of the metatarsal. I found that mine healed pretty quickly and i didn't end up needing a 2nd cast.

I wouldn't suggest quick changes of directions this soon but running and jumping etc. is all good providing it doesn't hurt. I did mine at the start of winter so i didn't play much basketball for a while because of the rain and i was feelin somewhat lazy after resting for a couple of weeks after it happened.

But as i said if you don't do anything drastic or anything that you know will make it hurt then you should be fine. Just jog until you're comfortable with sprinting and don't push yourself too much. As for endurance training i couldn't really suggest anything in particular because it's such a small bone...
