Spasms (uncontrollable twitching or jerky movements) frequently happen with fractures. Was your boxers fracture surgically repaired? Generally speaking, spasms are an initial complaint but do subside. I would suggest that since they are worsening rather than improving that you contact your physician for an evaluation.
