Broken foot physical therapy

Ok im 14 and just got put in a walking boot after 5 weeks in a cast.I broke four of the metatarsals (all but the pinky). I need some help with my ankle and heel. The heel is tender and cant hold my weight without pain and the ankle is stiff. Any ideas to get back to able to walk?

shouldn't a doctor be able to help you get back to walking? not a bunch of paintball idiots on a paintball website?

The doc just told me alright lets get you in a boot and left then a nurse said use the crutches to help take some weight off and thats it. I dont live very close to a physical therapist either. I figured some of yall might have some tips or helpful advice from people who have been in the same position

^ Plus this. Definitely.

Listen to your doctor, do your physical therapy, and do any home exercises they tell you to do. This is key to fully healing and minimizing any negative after effects.

The ankles/feet are, literally, your foundation. Be patient and get them 100% healthy by listening to the professionals. Online advice is not what you need right now. Sucks though. Good luck on a fast recovery.

If it hurts, and you're not in physical therapy, you should probably just avoid it. Use crutches and lift your leg up, a walking cast isn't necessarily to walk on, it just gives you the capability to do so. Your doctor should have given you instructions, and he did so for a reason. Nobody in here is a doctor, and orthopedics can be as complicated as medicine can get.

The best physical therapy for that is doing 315+ lb. squats on a bosu ball. I also recommend jumping up and down while pounding the ground as hard as possible. It will strengthen up your heel in no time.

Thanks for the help those who did. Those who were sarcastic just go away. Im able to walk with one crutch now i should be able to walk without one in a couple days thanks. I was just trying to rush into it. Im going to take it slow and accept the fact that this takes time.

You might try taking getting out into the sun more often, or taking vitamin D3 to strengthen your bones.

Remembered this article by a cardiologist talking about his son's broken hand healing quicker because of D3.
