Yes..You Can Get A Cast For Just A Hairline Fracture It Still Means You Have A Fracture (break) And A Cast Will Be Used To Mend The Bones because however serious It Is The Fracture Will Need To Be Mended Hope This Helps
How long a cast is on depends on the location of the hairline fracture. In sensitive areas the cast will need to be worn longer.
Depends on the body part
A hairline fracture of the wrist will not always need to be immobilized. If there is no displacement of the bones, the wrist will heal perfectly without casting. You may find greater comfort using a stiff brace rather than nothing, and the brace is far more comfortable, hygienic and better for the skin than a plaster cast. Your doctor will need to see x-rays to determine if the break needs casting or not. Without the cast you will need to exercise caution since the bone is already weakened, but with normal usage as you can bear it the wrist will heal in the same amount of time as with a cast. See your doctor and have x-rays in any event.
Take it to the hospital or doctor and find out
