In brief: SOMETIMES

It all depends upon the severity of the fracture and the length of treatment sometimes I do not send to therapy but allow the patient to follow up in a week or two and note progress (or lack of) other times the other extreme.
..Therapy is clearly needed often 3-4 x per week.

In brief: Variable

Generally i send patients 1-3x/week if they need it.
Depends on fracture, immobilization time, and fixation ...And patient.
