|Simple, uncomplicated fractures usually heal in 6 to 12 weeks without loss of function. Any increase in severity of the fracture or added complications will delay recovery for weeks to months and may compromise function. While the fracture may heal, damage to the surrounding structures can result in poor function of an extremity and a less than optimum outcome.|
Fracture risk may be significantly reduced in individuals over age 50 by using calcium and vitamin D supplements (Vega).
