In view of # 4th& 5th metatarsul casting anx immobaligation is advised.

Base of 5th metatarsal # Physiotherapy Treatment during pop : 1. Active toe movt. 2. Elevate lower limb during sleeping and sitting to avoid oedema and enhance venous return. 3. Walking with Walker with no weight bearing to the affected leg for 4weeks ... Then can go for partial weight bearing walk. 4. Cross training to knee joint and hip joint to avoid secondary stiffness during immobilization period.
