Is three weeks long enough for a broken bone to heal?

It's been 3 weeks since Koivu broke a bone in his foot and by video seen on RDS he seems like he has no problems make those quick cuts. My concern is how will his foot hold up once one of those !@@#@ Bruins take a cheap shot on his ankle.


Here's hoping he's completely healed and will be able to go at full speed. The Canadiens can really use him on the PP and to relieve the first line.

Go HABS Go

Definitely not, unless you're some kind of freak of nature.

At this point, a 75% Koivu cant make our second line (2pts since beginning of POs) worst.

If he doesn't play tomorrow and we lose, he's playing for Game7. Same goes for Bouillon and maybe Streit.

It won't be 100% but with the adrenaline and the novocaine he'll feel no pain.....

The fear is how much it swells afterwards and getting that down far enough to let him get a skate on for the next game.... hopefully he gets a few more days to rest if we can win this tomorrow.

Small bone can heal within 3-4 weeks especially with the top notch treatment these guys can get.

I think it doesn't matter, it's not something you'll wear a cast for or anything. From what I gather, as soon as the pain goes down enough for you to use it you should be good to go.

Not really, depends on the size of the bone, where the bone is(weight or non weight baring), how bad the break is.....

How long does it take a leg broken in two places to heal?

My co-worker has been out with one for 5 weeks and I wanna know the time-line when my work hell will end.

Pain has nothing to do with it. They freeze the ankle so you can't feel it and put a protective boot. What's to worry about is swelling and possibly making it worse (though I don't think at this point it would be possible for a bone injury).

Don't forget that calcium depositing is vital too. If the body has excess calcium in the blood, it deposits the surplus onto bone. If there's too little calcium in the blood, it breaks down bone to extract calcium.

A hairline fracture to a small bone with a high-calcium diet plus ultrasound and other treatment could certainly be fully healed in 3-4 weeks.

It sounds logical if it's a small bone with little vascularisation, but is it really effective for this application?

Not really...
High-calcium diet won't change anything. The level of calcium in your blood still about always the same (if your kidney and parathyroids are ok)

I had an evulsion fracture in my ankle as well as tearing most of the ligaments, and I could walk(albeit quite laboured) 10 days afterward. I was pretty much back to my old self in 3 weeks. Really depends on the kind of break and which bone it is.

I've broken bones in my hand a few times. However, the hand of a ball player doesn't see the action of a hockey player's foot. Normally the recovery is 6 weeks, but they start you on physio after 2 to get the swelling down. The swelling is the real problem for mobility. I've used a bat after 2 weeks, not healed but no extra damage from playing. But the quicker you use it, the longer it takes to get the swelling down.

And my hand wasn't at risk of facing a 100 mph puck. If they can rest him, they should.

Thats a harder question than a feet, anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks, (sometimes longer for non-linear fractures) plus he wont be able to re-walk for another 2-3 weeks after the bone is healed.

He's coming for one game, and then has about a week to rest his foot again, it should all be good.
