Western medicine treatments

Treatments vary depending on the location of the stress fracture and on how quickly you need to resume activity. The most important treatment is rest, individuals need to rest from the activities that caused the stress fracture, and engage in a pain-free activity during the six to eight weeks it takes most stress fractures to heal. If the activity that caused the stress fracture is resumed too quickly; larger, harder-to-heal stress fractures can develop. Re-injury also could lead to chronic problems where the stress fracture might never heal properly. Some of the treatments include the use of Anti-inflammatory pain relievers and rehabilitation therapies.
