In general, it takes anywhere from 6-8 weeks for a broken bone to heal completely.
There are four steps to the healing process:
1) The formation of hematoma at the break
2) The formation of a fibrocartilaginous callus
3) The formation of a bony callus
4) The remodeling and addition of compact bone
Some ways that you can help speed up this healing process are: Increasing your intake of Vitamin C which will help boost collagen. Collagen is a protein which is an important building block for bones. Taking a Vitamin C supplement may help, but it is always wise to consult a doctor before taking any supplements. The best way to increase your Vitamin C intake is eating fresh fruits and veggies.
