In brief: Fractures heal

Fractures usually all heal, but it is important first to make sure that it is well aligned or in an acceptable position and then protected while it is healing.
Weber b fractures if associated with pain or discomfort on inner aspect of the ankle or deloid ligament tear can be unstable and need care by an orthopedic surgeon and close follow up.
