General Fractures / Douglas Cutter, MD, CAQSM

– If you get a fracture, all fractures, the key thing
about a fracture is alignment, if it’s displaced, that’s not good. So you want the ends like they should All bones are completely
healed with a fracture usually after 12 weeks, unless you get what’s called a non-union. Usually about four weeks,
they’re pretty strong, eight weeks, they’re looking good, and 12 weeks is about when
it’s completely healed. But a fracture has to be immobilized in order for it to heal properly.
