Five Easy Tips for Recovering After a Broken Bone

It seems like it takes forever for a broken bone to heal. When you add in the hassle of dealing with slings, crutches and casts, six weeks can seem like six years.
Here are five things you can do to hasten the healing process.

Eat Right
This seems to be the standard answer for any ailment, but it bears repeating. Eating a balanced diet not only keeps you healthy, it also helps the body heal. Eating lean protein rich foods such as low fat dairy, chicken and beans maintain muscle tone and stimulate bone formation. Try increasing protein intake by 15 grams daily.

Listen to Your Doctor
Once the initial shock has passed, you might want to try to get back to your normal routine. While resuming activities is good for the mind, it’s not broken bonealways good for the body. Trying to do too much too soon can put additional strain on the damaged area and increase recovery time. Your doctor is the expert and heeding his/her advice regarding activity restrictions will allow you to return to normal faster. This is particularly important if the injury was due to a fall on commercial property or at someone’s home and a personal injury attorney is involved.

Massage
Using complementary medical practices, such as massage, can speed up the healing process. Gentle massage increases blood flow to the area which fuels the healing process. Gentle massage is called for in cases of a broken bone, both above and below the affected area. If you are unable to massage the area yourself, work with a licensed medical massage therapist. Licensed therapists have the necessary training to avoid exacerbating the injury.

No Smoking
Despite being another standard answer for health conditions, smoking truly is bad for the bones. The nicotine in cigarettes constricts blood vessels, preventing the necessary nutrients from reaching the damaged area, increasing the healing time.

Say No to Excess Calcium
While calcium is an essential nutrient for bone strength, more is not better. While consuming about 1,000 milligrams of calcium is good for your health, too much calcium doesn’t build bones. If enough calcium is consumed to create a calcium overdose, it can cause constipation or kidney stones. Discuss adding a small dose of Vitamin D to your diet to help your body absorb and use the calcium you consume effectively.
Healthy living habits are the best way to heal from a broken bone. Follow your doctor’s advice and soon you’ll be up and around in no time.
