In brief: Varies

The treatment of a fracture of the heel (calcareous) varies completely on the more specific nature of the fracture.
Non displaced fracture can be treated in a splint or cast. Some displaced fractures require surgery. Considerations are maintains the height of the calcaneus, preventing it from widening, and making sure the joints are well lined up to prevent posttraumatic arthritis.
