How Long Does it Take for my Broken Bone to Heal?

One of the most frequently asked questions we hear at CastCoverz!® is, “How long am I going to be in this thing?” Of course, our customers are talking about their cast, or boot, or crutches, sling or any orthopedic device. So, we thought we’d give you some general guidelines on the time it takes for your broken bone to heal.

Broken bone healing varies from between 4 weeks to 24 weeks, depending on the type of fracture, which bone is broken, your age, medical condition, treatment plan, compliance, and nutrition. As fast as they grow-up, children’s bones generally heal faster than adults! Here is a visual healing timeline for broken bones:
