Broken tibia

I broke my right tibia, non displaced about 1 inch below my knee. It has been approx 8 weeks and I'll be getting my cast off next week. No surgery was required. I don't have medical covg so can't afford PT.....are there any exercises I can do at home? Any other recommendations (nutrition, etc)?? I want to speed up recovery as fast as possible to get back to my police training.
Thanks in advance

The medical grade mineral oil released from the gel onto the skin also helps to soften dry skin and to reduce scar tissue by improving the mobility and elasticity of the skin after scarring.
