    About 10 years ago i ruptured the disc in my back between the L4 and L5 the surgery went well however my spine splintered and damaged my spinal cord. I have done ok but have had week foot strength in my right foot. I recently about 2 weeks ago fractured the 5th metatarsal (jones fracture) in my right foot Im trying to find if there is any link to nerve damage causing weak bones because the bone cracked as i was walking normal bearfoot it just popped and left me in pain

    Could be that you have some "osteoporosis" or "weaker bones" in your feet due to less activity levels as a consequence of the nerve damage. There is no direct link.
