Cuboid fracture recovery

I'm new to the group, hello

I have a cuboid fracture - it happened a little over two weeks ago. When I first saw the orthopedist, she put me in a boot and told me not to bear any weight on it for at least 6 weeks. I went to another ortho guy this past Tuesday and he told me to start bearing weight. He wants me walking without crutches in 3 weeks (in the boot). I absolutely can not bear any weight on it. Not only does the fracture itself hurt but my heel tingles so much that I can't put any pressure on that either. I also can't move half my toes. Is this all normal to the cuboid healing? I'm worried I have some nerve damage. I've never broken a bone before so I'm not sure what is normal!


If anyone has any advice I'd greatly appreciate it!

Re: Cuboid fracture recovery

Hello, I am a man(tennis Player) who had the same thing. I went to a chiropractor (not sure how you spell it) and he manipulated it until it was corrected. It took around 3 weeks and he gave me a customized support for my shoes which didn't help much. It was really tender but I could walk on it and after 2 more weeks I was able to play tennis again. I'm wondering if they hadn't corrected the problem. Maybe I was just lucky. My suggestion is that if you don't get improvement soon, call either another foot doctor for more xrays and treatment. Good luck.

I forgot to ask, are you a dancer? The reason I ask is I know that type of injury is most common from dance.
