novicular nicrosis with stress fracture

I have been diagnosed with the above problem. My Doctor has me in a sport boot pumped up tight with a wrap underneath for extra support. I am in considerable pain. He also has me rubbing the large toe back towards the ankle for 20 minutes 3 times per day to incourage the blood flow. Anyone have a similar condition? How is your Doc handling it?

Any Sugestions????

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated.
