Depends


Generally, no. Closed foot phalanx fractures heal in a relatively predictable manner. There are no proven medications or other measures that will speed this up. However, there are some especially severe fractures and open fractures that will heal faster with surgery. There are also a very small number that will go on to nonunion. Nonunions need investigation and tailored treatment.
