Abstract: The major technique used to treat the complications of calcaneal fracture is surgery which is costlier. There are many materials which have the capacity to produce the continuous pressure on the bone when it is applied in combination with the heat producing chemical or material. The present case study describes the simplest way to treat the complication of calcaneal fracture through non-surgical management using ceramic (clay) material.

Keywords: ceramic material; lateral ankle pain; calcaneal fracture; case study; ceramics; clay; continuous pressure; bone pressure; heat; non-surgical management; bone fractures.
