      I watched the episode on returning an athlete from broken 5th metatarsal, what is the reasoning behind not casting?

      The boot allows the person to take it off and move the foot.
      Otherwise you are locked in and can’t move it. You need to reclaim the soft tissue injury.

      Also, it was a decision between Jenny and her MD!
