There are four stages in the repair of a broken bone:👇🏻😀
Dr. Mehnaz Memon🖊
🔅What are the 4 stages of bone healing?
•Fibrocartilaginous callus formation
•Bony callus formation
🔅What is callus formation in bone healing?
•Bone production begins when the clotted blood formed by inflammation is replaced with fibrous tissue and cartilage (known as soft callus). As healing progresses, the soft callus is replaced with hard bone (known as hard callus), which is visible on x-rays several weeks after the fracture.
🔅What foods heal bones faster?
•Iron helps your body make collagen to rebuild bone. It also plays a part in getting oxygen into your bones to help them heal.
•Good sources: Red meat, dark-meat chicken or turkey, oily fish, eggs, dried fruits, leafy green veggies, whole-grain breads, and fortified cereals.
🔅How long does it take for a broken bone to fully heal?
•A broken bone and the surrounding soft tissue damage need a minimum of six to eight weeks to heal. However, depending on your general health and the condition of your bone and soft tissue, healing can take much longer.
