Broken Bones Are Not Always Simple Fractures
Our bodies are dependent on the wholesomeness of the structure and the strength of the bones. In most cases, bones are resilient and a bone fracture will heal within several weeks or even a few months. Patients can usually return to a normal life. Some fractures, however, take many months to heal and others never fully heal.
