hello... orthopedic doctor is more preferable or suitable for this as they hold specialization in it. For best treatment go with orthopedics doctor and after that physiotherapy is required.

Hi...., Rest is the initial treatment of a hairline fracture...... Physical therapy to increase muscle strength and flexibility may be considered to help prevent future injury.... You should walk with support untill the fracture heals..... surgery is sometimes necessary to ensure complete healing of some types of hairline fractures, especially those that occur in areas with a poor blood supply....However, consult your Orthopedician, they will guide you further....
