Hairline fractures

Does anyone know if you can walk on a hairline fracture or if you need crutches or a boot? I messed it up on the left foot left side about 4 inches down from my baby toe where that bone is.

Answer #1

If you have been diagnosed, the doctor should have prescribed your therapy. If you haven’t had an xray, it would be smart to do so. A hairline fracture leaves a weak site that can torque out of shape and bother you for the rest of your life if it heals improperly.
