Cracked bones will experience improvement from the moment of the incident. Improvements will generally be experienced perfectly in about 6 months. In some cases, this time can be faster or slower. Even in some cases failure occurs repair. It is said to have failed to improve, if there has not been a connection again up to 8 months after the incident.
There are several factors that affect the healing time of a fractured or broken bone, namely:
1. Age factor. In children, healing will occur more quickly and in parents will be slower.
2. Nutritional status. Someone who suffices his nutrition will more quickly experience improvement.
3. The part of the bone that is cracked or broken. Generally in areas where movement is difficult to avoid, such as limbs, healing will be slower. However, this can be helped by aids, a cast or a pair of pens to minimize shifts in fractured or broken bones.
4. Severity of broken or cracked condition.
We recommend that you check with an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will see whether there has been an improvement or if there is a worsening of the condition so that it requires further treatment. In addition, doctors need to prescribe analgesic or painkillers and anti-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Meanwhile, consume nutritious foods that contain high calories and protein such as cork fish. Also consume milk or anchovies as foods high in calcium which are needed by the bones.
Thus hopefully useful.
