I sustained a non-displaced jones fracture on march 9th. I do not weight bear and use crutches. Do I need a cast or splint? More buising has appeared?

Yes. Typically these fractures are treated in a non-weightbearing cast with x-rays every couple of weeks until healed.
Cast. Jones fractures are prone to not healing. At the very least a cast and crutches is necessary. If it is not showing signs of healing, surgery may become necessary.

5th metatarsal. It is important that you see a physician to guide you through this. With a “jones fracture” there is a high risk for nonunion, or failure to heal properly so timely medical intervention is key for an optimal outcome. Nwb w/ crutches is certainly a safe move. You also may want to inquire about a cam walkker/ boot. I would refrain from excessive foot/ ankle motion until cleared by your physician. Read more...
Usually splint. Jones fractures are a subset of fractures that involve the proximal fifth metatarsal. They seem nery minimal injuries, but the blood flow to that area is poor and so they can heal slowly. They are usually treated with strict non weight bearing and are usually treated with a splint to immobilize the foot as well. If they don't heal, or if the patient can't be out long, they can be fixed. Thanks. Read more...
