    Care and treating a stress fracture

    Just got back from the docs after a month of hobbling on a fucked up ankle, and was informed that I am the proud owner of a stress fracture. I believe this is the result of hitting the heavybag improperly (the fracture is just above the ankle, on whatever the hell that bone is). I've been told to rest, and that I will, but is there any other way to accelerate the healing process?

    I used the search function, and didn't quite find anything for this.

    REST!

    Anti-inflammatory meds eg advil, etc

    Ice

    REST

    You need to avoid loading the fractured bone, and you need to do this for a while even after it has stopped hurting - the commonest way to reinjure the "fractured" area is to go back to trining too early.

    The pain is pretty much gone actually. Like I said, it's been a month since the injury. Only pain I get is when I make contact with the injured area.

    Thanks though.

    That sucks! I friend of mine had a similar injury. He hurt it sparring and it took him 6 months to heal. Be careful, don't even skip or do any cardio, while you're resting it.

    And if you get impatient and start wanting to kick things, just download that infamous MT-broken leg clip, and that'll settle you down.

    Hang in there!

    I had one in calf (whatever the name of the bone is), and it kept happening over and over. One doctor put me on a swimming regimen for 6 weeks AFTER it was healed, and I haven't had a reoccurence since. Take that for what it's worth.

    I was down from stress fractures in my shins for 6 weeks, took an additional two weeks just to make sure, and I just ran a 10-miler and I've been kicking the heavy bag with no problems. Be patient and let it heal, brother. It will get better.

    I'm sounding like an echo here but just sit back and take it easy dude, stress fractures ain't no joke.

    If you are serious about accelerated healing of stress fractures or any bone injury, Test works.

    There is a need for "anabolic" drugs that can directly stimulate bone growth, improve bone microarchitecture, accelerate fracture healing, and, thus, restore bone strength to osteoporosis patients and, hopefully, regenerate eroded bone in arthritis patients. The anabolic agents currently leading the way to the clinic are the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and some of its adenylyl cyclase-stimulating fragments. This article is a summary of what is known about how PTHs stimulate bone growth. The controversial bone anabolic activities of the cholesterol-lowering lipophilic statins are also described, and mechanisms by which they may stimulate bone growth are presented. Finally, evidence is presented for the body's "fat-o-stat" cytokine--leptin--indirectly restraining bone growth via a hypothalamic factor, while at the same time serving as a local PTH-like autocrine/paracrine stimulator of osteoblast activity, as well as an inhibitor of osteoclast generation.
