No, this isn't going to help if you're short.
I've been dealing with the after effects of a Maisonneuve fracture of the fibula and Syndesmosis tear. The initial surgery had problems so it was repeated (for free) and a bone fusion between the Tibia and Fibula was done just above the joint.
My PT called to ask about the Tens Device he gave me last week. He didn't know why the Ortho had prescribed it to stimulate bone growth at the fusion. Neither did I since the Tens Device is for pain reduction. So while I was talking to him I googled a few things and found this term "ultrasonic osteogenesis stimulator (e.g., the Sonic Accelerated Fracture Healing System (SAFHS))" which is what others on MTBR had been discussing for various bone injuries. The first hit with that term was for this device to help heal bones.
That's what I need. The PT agreed since he wasn't able to find anything related to the Tens Device and the promotion of bone growth. Here's a supporting article for bone growth stimulators.
