Broken Bones Healing Process Physiotherapy Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670

Broken bones start the fracture healing process almost immediately after the injured bones and surrounding structures and tissues starts to bleed, and a hematoma forms. This blood thickens and coagulates to form a clot between the fragments, and within a few days the blood vessels will grow into the hematoma (jelly-like matrix of healing clot by now), bringing phagocytes (cleaning up agents) that slowly removes not-important/dead tissues away from the area.

Then the blood vessels brings in fibroblasts into the walls of the vessels which multiply and produce collagen fibres, that slowly replaces the matrix of blood clot with that of collagen. The rubbery and elastic consistency of the collagen fibres immobilizes bone fragments unless very strong or persistent forces are applied to them.

Later, the fibroblasts lays down bone fibres called bone matrix at the core of the fractured site, called calcium hydroxyapatite, which are insoluble, solid crystals. The collagen fibres, when combines with these crystals, transforms it into bone tissue. Healing fractures is sufficiently mineralised and strengthened over a period of six weeks (one and a half months), shorter time is required in children, and likewise, longer time is required in older people.

However, these initial and freshly healed bones do not have the strong properties of mature bones, and are susceptible to fractures again given enough force application. Healed broken bones, by a process of remodelling, matures by lamellar bones structuring. The entire process takes up to 18 months, but the strength of the bone is up by 80% in about 3 months after the initial fracture injuries.

There are some factors that can accelerate or decelerate the healing process. Presence of nicotine slows the healing, good nutrition as well as adequate calcium intake will help the bone healing process. Weight bearing activities, when the bone has healed sufficiently to bear the weight, builds bone strength.
