A bone stimulator is a battery operated device that you place on the fracture site externally on the skin. It helps stimulate the cells that are needed to heal a fracture.   If you have a fracture that is not healing after a certain amount of time or you have a fracture that is notoriously difficult to heal, your doctor may prescribe this for you. If you have a fracture or think you may have one, contact our doctors at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic today.
