05 Dec Why It’s Important To Treat A Fracture
Treating a fracture is essential.
Your body begins the healing process right after a fracture occurs, protecting the injured area with a blood clot and callus.
Almost immediately, new threads of bone cells begin to grow on either side of the fracture, growing towards each other to close the fracture.
Because of the body’s response, having a doctor set broken bones is vital. In most cases, we apply a splint to hold the bone in place while it heals and closes the fracture.
Surgery may be needed when the break is not clean.
