Broken bone in foot

    Any suggestions for healing it quicker please? 3 weeks today since I did it, and for the last 2 weeks I've had it in 4c water for about 30 mins twice daily. After new x ray yesterday it is no better & have to go & see a specialist.
    Thought I might try a red light pad twice daily next.

    Red light and cold alternation is the way to go with sunlight exposure to strength the Haversian canals in the bone callus.

    Here is my anecdotal experience with a broken ankle.

    I suffered an ankle bimalleolar fracture from a fall, and my orthopedist said x-rays indicated bones were probably displaced beyond 'tolerance' for a clean knit of bones, and suggested surgery might be necessary to forestall ankle arthritis. I know that conventional doctors basically have only two tools in their toolkits-- surgery and drugs.

    I decided to wait since I knew surgery came with all sorts of risks. I remembered reading about use of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) to heal broken bones-- specifically that Dr Robert O Becker (author of Cross Currents and Body Electric) was a pioneer in field of applying electromagnetic energy at various frequencies for pain relief and to help broken bones knit better.

    I purchased an ICES PEMF device (one of the safer ones with lower frequencies/energies and muted RF radiation) and used it frequently. On my final followup with orthopedist he was amazed at how fast and well broken ankle bones had knitted-- and in good alignment.

    That is a big reason I am in favor of therapeutic use of PEMF devices, used properly.

    Becker in "Body Electric" writes that sunlight is really good for bone healing.
    I guess earthed makes it even better. And with CT, yes. Weird the bone have not healed at all in those weeks :thumbsdown:. Are you keeping it silent? Because I could imagine that is important too for healing a broken bone. If you move it it want heal.

    I'm staying off it as much as possible, & use crutches when I can. Husband is working full- time so difficult not to use it a bit more when he's at work thank Inger

    There are 26 bones in foot, so your 'broken bone in foot' is at best very vague.

    I had to wear a foot fracture walking boot (not a cast, but it immobilizes the foot) and stay off that broken ankle for weeks in order to allow bones to knit properly without body weight and pressure moving the bony bits around-- otherwise those bones would never knit, or at best, would heal out of proper alignment.

    It's the one on the RHS on right foot, below toe. I have a moon boot which I presume is similar to what you had

    Just my 2 bob,much the same as above. so i suspect one of the metatarsals, do the cam boot-often 4-6 weeks, and get some red light therapy x2 weekly, do top of foot over fracture and bottom of foot, again aiming at fracture area. LED right against the skin and continue with the cold.

    Thanks Jacqui are you are right it was one of the metatarsals - couldn't remember what you call it.

    I hope you heal well with no complications. Bones should join within 6-8 weeks?

    thanks I'll find out on Wednesday, next xray then orthopaedic surgeon. Hopefully with CT, red light & sun that will be the end of it.
