Question: Can you walk on a fibula stress fracture?

After suffering a fibula stress fracture, most people are advised by physicians to limit load on the fractured fibula, especially early on. Once the leg is strong enough to begin physical therapy, the athlete will only be able to walk or run at a fraction of their total body-weight load.

How long does it take for a hairline fracture of the fibula to heal?

For minor fibula fractures or breaks, it may only take about six weeks to make a full recovery. However, in most cases involving a broken fibula, it will take at least twice that amount of time, if not longer.
