Bones are tough but they can still break for many reasons. When a bone is broken, it is called a fracture and it can break in many different ways, like a complete fracture is when it is broken in two, or an open fracture where its sticking through your skin. Anyways, it takes time to heal depending what has happened, but it will heal in time.
