The 4 steps of bone repair are hematoma formation, fibrocartilaginous callus, bony callus, and remodeling.

A medical person can help the fracture to mend by reducing (straightening), immobilizing (splint, cast, etc.), use of antibiotics, and prescribing temporary lifestyle adjustments (elimination of sports, extended standing, etc.).
