Would the cuboid bone be a difficult bone to break and how long would it take to heal?

Would the cuboid bone be a difficult bone to break and how long would it take to heal?

The peroneus longus passes under the cuboid- this muscle stabilizes the inner foot in gait and this crush fracture can cause problems with walking-- you should see your podiatrist for reconstruction. ...Read more
