Speed Bone Repair Naturally

Bone fractures are cracks or breaks in our bones often caused by accidents or injuries but also by osteoporosis and cancers that weaken our bones. They are excruciatingly painful and diagnosed by an x-ray. They are most common in legs, ankles, arms, wrists and hips but can occur in any bone in the body. Once the bone has been set by the doctor, the best remedy is rest, however there are other natural remedies that will help boost healing and strengthen bones.

 

How do I know if I have a fracture?

  • Swelling and bruising over bones
  • Limb deformity
  • Pain in the injured area
  • Loss of function in the injured area
  • Open fractures with bone protruding through skin

Remember, if you think you or someone you know has a fracture seek medical attention immediately.

 

If you or someone you know may have fractured a bone:

  • Do not move the individual or affected limb.
  • Apply pressure to any open wounds with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Do not try and straighten or set the bone yourself.
  • Try immobilizing the injury with a splint until help can arrive.
  • Relieve pain and swelling with ice wrapped in a towel or cloth.
