A Dancer's Fracture

A dancer’s fracture is a fracture in the shaft of the fifth metatarsal bone. Like the name implies this fracture is common in dancers but can occur during any inversion injury. Unlike a Jones fracture, a dancer’s fracture usually heals very well and surgery is usually not needed. Typically, a patient may be weightbearing in a removable cast boot for six weeks after a dancer's fracture.  Serial X-rays are performed to check the healing progress. If the fracture fragments are displaced very far apart, surgery may be considered. In this case, usually the patient is non-weightbearing for two weeks followed by protected weightbearing in a cast boot for an additional four weeks.
