When a bone fractures, it begins the healing process by forming a callus at the fracture site, where calcium is deposited to aid rebuilding, said Dr. Terry D. Amaral, director of pediatric orthopedic surgery at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.
Your doctor makes an incision on the foot and uses internal fixators such as wires, pins, or plates to attach the broken bones of the foot together until healing happens after which these fixators can be removed or may be permanently left inside the body.
More serious fractures may require surgery Once the broken bone has been put back in place, the limb or area is immobilized with a cast or splint The cast (or splint) is left on for different amounts of time, depending on how serious or complicated the break was. Bones in this area are more likely to be broken than bones in other parts of the body because we tend to use our arms and hands the most when trying to break a fall.
Common over-the-counter homeopathic remedies include arnica as an anti-trauma remedy for immediately after the fracture (not to be used if the person is unconscious), symphytum (comfrey) for pain relief and the joining of set bones, and Calcarea phosphorica for fractures that are difficult to heal.
Nonunion fractures may also occur in otherwise healthy people that have not had their bones medically treated or have suffered an infection or severe trauma to the soft tissues surrounding the fracture site. Because of this, rib fractures generally take 4 to 6 weeks to heal and may cause pain throughout the healing process. Stress fractures are the result of multiple microtraumas where the bone cannot tolerate and absorb repeated stresses placed upon it. It is an overuse injury and is often seen in the lower leg especially with runners and other athletes.
