How to speed up fracture healing of tibia and fibula?

Ultrasound. Tibial shaft fracture are slow healers. The average time to healing in a simple tibia fracture is about 4.5 months. There is one study that suggests applying a medical device that emits pulses of ultrasound waves to the bone for twenty minutes a day can decrease the healing time approximately by three weeks. You can argue if this is a benefit or not in a slow healing fracture.
You can't. Unfortunately, nothing you can do to speed it up. I would suggest that you take enough calcium and vitamin d through your diet (well balanced diet), follow the instructions given to you and wait patiently.

What is the typical healing time for a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula?

Unpredictable. The healing time is very dependent on the amount of soft tissue damage that occurs at the time of the fracture. Compound fractures are those that have an opening in the skin associated with them, but it's not the opening but rather the amount of skin, tissue and bone loss as well as possible injuries to blood vessels and nerves that determines the time for healing.

What's the best treatment for compound fracture of tibia and fibula?

Wash out and surgery. A compound fracture is one in which the fracture bone(s) penetrate through the skin. This is a surgical emergency that requires immediate attention. The initial goal during surgery is to thoroughly irrigate (wash out) and debride (clean up) the bone and tissues in an attempt to prevent infection. At the same time, the fractures are repaired, often using rod for the tibia & possibly a fibular plate. Read more...

When surgery done? The first question I have is, how long has it been since surgery? There are a couple of concerns if the injury was recent. You could have a deep vein clot. That's serious and you would need eval for that right away. The other possibility is nerve injury or maybe a regional block was done? You should have a set of post op instructions. Read that and then contact your ortho doc, discuss what to do. Read more...
