How Long Does it Take for a Broken Bone to Heal?
Broken bones (or fractures) have an amazing ability to heal, especially in children. New bone forms within a few weeks of the injury. Depending on the bone affected and type of break, full healing can take just a few months.
Usually, broken bones heal faster in kids than in adults. Within a few months, kids usually are back to all the activities they enjoyed before the broken bone.
