Also, do bones become stronger after fracture?
Broken Bones Grow Back Stronger…This calcium collection is really strong, so, while thebone is healing there is a period when the break siteis stronger than it ever has been. But, the rest of thebone surrounding the break site actually demineralizesbecause of inactivity (since you're probably in acast).
Secondly, how does bone heal after a fracture? In order for a fracture to heal, thebones must be held in the correct position and protected.Soon after a fracture occurs, the body acts to protect theinjured area, and forms a protective blood clot and callus aroundthe fracture. New "threads" of bone cells start togrow on both sides of the fracture line.
