So you've been injured? The bad news... forced rest period; the good news? You're on the road to recovery! Now that you've accepted the events its time to focus on your body's recovery. In my case, I have fractured bones that are healing but exactly how do bones repair themselves? If set properly bones can make a complete recovery with time. After a bone breaks, a fracture hematoma is formed. It is a clot that cuts off blood flow while cells are working to remove dead tissue.
