How is calcaneal apophysitis treated?
Calcaneal apophysitis is usually treated by reducing activity, stretching and using a tapered heel lift. In some severe cases, a cast may be used to promote healing while keeping the foot and ankle immobile.
What is a Jones fracture?
A Jones fracture is a break on the outside of the foot, at the base of the foot's fifth metatarsal bone, which connects to the little toe. The area is in the midportion of the foot. It is noteworthy because it occurs in a small area of the fifth metatarsal that receives less blood, making it more prone to problems in healing. Jones fractures can become chronic conditions if the fracture fails to unite or heal.
