After a broken bone heals will the bone always have a weak spot?
people say that they grow back stronger but i have broken my wrist 3 times in 7 years, the 1st time, a clean snap but the other 2 were from simple falling over in netball and tennis and was just a fracture and its now the doctors say i probably have a weak spot where i 1st broke it.

When the marrow prdouces new cells and reataces the bone it takes about 3 weeks.
Bone regrowth occurs in many stages. First osteoblasts are activated and begin to releases collage in all directions. They also mineralize this collagen by adding calcium phosphate. At this point the bone has no structure. Slowly the bones osteoclasts begin to eat away the old bone and the newly for…med bone and the bone remodels itself to best align with stresses. (MORE)
It normally takes a month or 2 but it varys depending on what bone and how bad it has been broken
This is not an easy question to answer since it depends on many factors. But in general a canine broken leg will require 6-8 weeks to heal and could take as long as several months for the animal to return to its normal level of activity. But it has to be set correctly by someone with access to a xra…y machine who can interpret the results of the xray. A licensed vet is your best bet. Once the bone is set correctly it is very important to restrict the dogs activity in the first few weeks of the break. Essentially, potty breaks are the only activity in which the dog should be moving around and this should be only on a leash with no stairs involved. Otherwise strict crate rest is the best way to ensure the bone will heal correctly. If any of the previous instructions are not followed the dog could ultimately end up crippled. Additionally, the bone could heal in a way that restricts blood flow to the area of the break and lead to the necessity to amputate the leg. (MORE)
well you can ethier go to the hospital and get that part of your body removed or you can get surgery on that bone..
it heals by keeping in a brace or cast and the bone grows back in place also should be seen by ortepedic.
well the fastest way to heal a broken bone is the only way . the blood around the break hardens and covers the brocken ends of bone, like a scab that forms on your skin when you cut yourself . minerals and bone repairing tissues in the blood and bone start to work . the ends of the bone become soft …. Then new bone , called callus , starts to grow from the broken ends . the callus grows between the broken ends of bone and starts to harden .whenit is completely hard , the bone is back to normal !. After the age of 25yrs(approx)bones take longer to heal .You can help it along by eating calcium rich foods like milk or fish. (MORE)
Four years ago I fell from a ladder and shattered my Talus bone into about eighteen recognizable pieces. Recovery time for the normal Talus fracture ranges from eight to twelve weeks. However, with a severe fracture like mine was comes AVN. Avascular Neucrosis. Excuse my spelling. AVN occurs when th…e Talus' blood supply has been so traumatized that it removes itself for a time, causing a dead bone. Usually the blood supply will replace itself and grow back into the bone. The time span for recovering from AVN is actually the most extensive part of recovering from a Talus fracture. Regrowth of the vascular supply ranges from six months to eighteen months depending on the case. There are machines available which speed the vascular systems regrowth. Exogen is the unit that I was able to get. January 21, 2004 was the date I broke my Talus, and I took my first steps on a uncasted foot on August 20, 2004. Many doctors will say that a Talus fracture is one of the most devastating breaks to the leg or ankle. Its no fun and will continue to hurt for life. (MORE)
ur bones are broken when an amount of persure is exzereted on a particular area (more preasure that the bone can handle. or of they are twisted or moved to a possesion where they are not ment to be put to. or if there is a suffen strain an ur physical body is not prepaired for eg falling backwards a…nd langind on ur wrist. hopw this was help full :) (MORE)
When you got a hurt bone. Don't just sit and cry, yell for a parent or guardian. Then they will take you to the hospital. Try not to walk on it. Because that happened to me.
blood around break hardens, then minerals in the bone seep out,then a callus starts to form, after the callus hardens, the bone ishealed
I think it's called cell division, though I'm not very sure. I skipped 7th grade biology for 8th grade physics so I have doubts...
A broken bone is a bone that has suffered stress. Such stress couldlead to several types of fractures.
Yes It depends on the age and if the Vet can set the bone. Puppies are resilient and bones heal well and quickly. A Vet does need to set the bones and it will take about 4 weeks of carrying the dog out to do her/his business. An older dog may have more trouble but could heal with plenty of rest. … Just such a thing happened to my sisters King Shepard pup this spring and the puppy is fine now 8 weeks later. (MORE)
Either they wouldn't, or they would rap up the broken area with a cloth. The cloth would hold the bone together while it healed, and it is the same idea today with a cast.
I think it does. When you're sleeping, your body heals at the same time. So it seems logical.
it depends on your age and the severity of your break but it can be from 4 weeks - 10
A broken bone typically heals in 6 weeks, but that time can vary. A standard fracture is 6 weeks. My arm took about that. A more complicated one can be over double that. My leg took 5 months!
Yes. However, the difference in density will cause the bone to uniquely distribute pressure throughout that bone, making it more likely to break, just in a different location. 020510 02/05/10
Increase the calcium intake. Calcium is a nutrient that is responsible for keeping the bones healthy. It is well absorbed by the body along with vitamin D.Anincrease in calcium will help in the speedy recovery of a bone fracture. It is found in dairy products and vegetables and nowadays is available… in supplements. . Drink at least 5 cups of tea;green tea in particular. Aside from its powerful anti-oxidants that inhibit the growth of cancer cells, green tea has been used in China for centuries due to its healing properties, which includes healing of fractures. . Healing touch. Massage is beneficial to the body in many ways. It helps increase blood flow and circulation throughout the body. If you massage the soft tissue around the fractured area, this will help in blood circulation as well as an increase in the flow of nutrients that will help heal the fracture faster. . Heat treatment. Application of heat to the fractured area will help increase blood flow and will then help in bone repair. It is very easy to apply heat to the fracture,and you can do this in many ways. You can either use a towel soaked in hot water or a wheat bag. You can also have warm baths or apply heat rubs to the area. Do these three times a day for 30 minutes. . Exercise. It is important to exercise to help strengthen the muscles in the fractured area.Exercise should be done with care though and it should be individually tailored to your needs and capabilities. . Stop smoking. Smokers have less mineral density than non-smokers. Studies also show that smokers have longer average healing time because smoking alters flow of blood (MORE)
mostly soft, or chewy foods but it depends on which bone it is. if its ur arm then you can eat what ever you want, if its your ribs, eat really really soft foods
As cast does not "heal a borken bone," it is a treatment for this type of injury. A cast basically holds the bones together through mechanical engineering techniques. This stabilizes the bones so that they would not move around. Through this, the cells and tissues are able to repair the wound.
There are cells called osteocytes and osteoblasts and osteoclasts always crawling around inside and around bones. They constantly dissolve away bits of bone and constantly lay down new bits of bone. When a bone breaks the physical stresses and chemical signals attract more of these cells to lay down… more new bone. Where the two broken ends of a bone touch the new bone laid down "glues" them together. Over time all the bone around the break gets dissolved and rebuilt bit by bit, effectively erasing the crack. (MORE)
Bone has a cell called osteoblast which builds the bone. To prevent too much bone, cells called osteoclast destroys the bone and reabsorbs the calcium.
depends on the point of impact and the speeed but no it does not always result in a compound fracture
Unless it's a multiple fracture, the cast is usually on for about six weeks. If it is the leg that was broken, then crutches may be needed for a couple of weeks after the cast is removed.
There are two major factors affecting how rapidly a broken bone will heal - alignment and immobility. Alignment refers to how close the broken bits are to each other - the further away the pieces are, the longer it will take for a bony callus to form and reunite the pieces. Immobility refers to how …stable the break is - the more the pieces move, the longer it takes for a bony callus to corral all the bits and glue them back together. If either factor is missing (either the pieces are not close enough or the break continues to move), the bones may never heal and you end up with a nonunion fracture that will take surgery and a lot of time to fix. (MORE)
Get the bone set properly, get the pieces immobilized and leave it alone. Don't put pressure on the break and don't try to make the bone do any work. Getting sufficient calcium (you can eat dairy products, drink milk, eat certain vegetables like broccoli and kale, or take supplements) and having a s…teady supply of protein (chicken, pork, beef, turkey, fish, beans all work) can also help.

my pelvis is broke in 3 places how long do you know before i get any relief? as well as my L2 lumbar
The broken bone that heal are your fingers, legs, ankle,arms,foot , and your elbo. These are the only bones in your body that are able to heal.
If bones are broken and heal, they always heal themselves when they are broken. All a doctor can do is see that they are properly set so they can heal properly and not at an angle. The body does the actual healing. A number of people walk around with improperly healed fractures.
If you fractured a bone you want to keep it (splint it so it doesn't move) in a comfortable position and ice it before you go to the hospital and get X-Rays. EX: If you fractured a finger, you can use a Popsicle stick and tape your finger to it to illiminate movement. Always splint above and below t…he break. If it's a really serious break, where one bone has actually 'split' and now there is two bones, it needs to be put back into place and splinted. This process is extremely painful. Always ice a break to eliminate swelling, and minimize movement if you are lacking in materials to splint. After that, get a ride to the hospital or call an ambulance. (MORE)
Usually you will have to wear a brace, or some sort of thing where the doctors give you to put on it. For protection. Then, it takes...hmm, maybe a few weeks until you can take it off. After that, it's fine. :)
Yes but only slightly and the slightly is so little it is not worth worrying about you have 0.9% chance more source: doctor
Smoking weed gets you high and stimulates the appetite (theinfamous "munchies"), and that's pretty much it.
Usually around six weeks if you are a healthy adult if you are talking about dogs, anywhere from 10 weeks to 4 months. But that all depends on where the break is and how old your dog is and what breed they are and if it had surgery.
that's a good question i think i said i think it would heal the same but you never know
Because a bone in your body is very rough and hard, the bone's healing time depends on the size of the damage, if the bone is completely snapped then it will take longer then a cut because it is bigger damage whereas a cut can seal itself. . The skin as such is made up out of organic soft materia…l where cells can multiply very fast given the right conditions. Our bone structure is made up out of specialized cells that absorbs a lot of calcium (and other components) that hardens them over time. A bone heals quite quick though as in having or getting the cells needed in order to "glue" it back together again. This happens much at the same rate as skin cells would heal up. It is the process of hardening and strengthening this freshly formed new material that is responsible for the long time it takes. A broken bone will rarely break at the same place again after it is healed though. The fracture actually make the bone structure stronger where it happened due to "scar tissue" or extra bone material being deposited in and around the fracture. Skin with scar tissue does not experience this effect and will be weaker for a really long time afterwards, often through life, although not much weaker. (MORE)
If you decide there is no need for a cast and manually take offyour cast without a doctors ok, your arm may not be fully healed.What may happen is that the bone will fully heal, but be morecrooked than it normally would be.
Yes they can but you need to go to the hospital and put a cast.
It depends on the bone that is broken, how it is broken and how old the horse is. Tail bones (coccyx and caudal vertebrae) will generally be left to heal on their own without the need to set or cast the injury; leg bones will generally not heal even if a cast is placed over the break. Also, a smooth… break tends to heal worse than a jagged break, because all the cracks and crevices in a jagged break help hold the pieces together. Finally, a young horse (colt, filly, yearling) will typically heal from broken bones better than a mature horse (mare, stallion, gelding) due to the increased weight placed on the skeleton. (MORE)
First, the broken bone pieces have to be realigned so that they are in the correct position (which is the position they were in before they broke) and then, the bone has to be set, or stabilized with a cast or splint, so that the pieces remain aligned and do not become misaligned again before they h…ave a chance to heal.

Calcium, minerals, vitamins, all part of a balanced and nutrient-rich diet, as well as regular exercise, build strong bones that can withstand force well.
it would take about 5 weeks. if you eat or drink things that havecalcium in it will join even quicker. the broken arm needs a lot ofrest.
Exact answer can't be given because it depends on where you have broken your bone. Best advise would be to go to a doctor and he should tell you how long after they perform an x-ray on you.
They may hurt a little but if you drink milk it will help grow more bone cells to help make it heal faster. And they undergo pain and other things try searching this and checking other sites for more info but thats all that I know from when I broke my arm
On a cellular level, broken bones first heal by the dislocated bone being pushed together back into place, preferably by a doctor. After that, it initiates the long process comprised of three phases, the reactive phase, the reparative phase, and the remodeling phase.
Older peoples bones break easier and heal slower because they arentas strong and their bones have probably been broken before so theare softer and more tender.
No. Despite what marijuana promoters claim, there's really noevidence it does much of anything except get you high.
I have a broken butterfly shaped bone in my lower back that is broken but will heal What can i do to help it heal?
you could do some light exercise like moving your legs gently and trying to stand up.
