Answer

In general, early lesions have a greater chance for true bony healing. Early lesions usually yield good to excellent results. The chronic lesions have a decreased chance for true bony healing; however, even without complete bony union, the symptoms can resolve with proper therapy, rest, and sport-specific techniques. [1]
