Exogen Bone Stimulator: For All Stages of Bone Fracture Healing
This is the bone stimulator I primarily use with patients. Many insurance companies will only cover if the fracture healing is delayed (past 3 months). But, since it works from day one of a fracture, some hard to heal fractures like Jones Fractures of the 5th metatarsal, any metatarsal fracture that has broken through both sides, sesamoid fractures, navicular fractures, calcaneal fractures, and talar neck fractures would be greatly helped with the bone stimulator if it could be started early. I am hopeful insurance companies will see the logic in this.
