DR. JONATHAN OHEB'S TIPS ON SUCCESSFUL FRACTURE HEALING:
1. ALWAYS MOVE YOUR FINGERS AFTER AN INJURY IF YOUR FINGERS ARE NOT THE BODY PART WITH THE INJURY.
KEEPING YOUR FINGERS STIFF UNNECESSARILY FOR EVEN A FEW DAYS CAN LEAD TO PERMANENT STIFFNESS THAT MAY NEVER RECOVER.
2. Seek care immediately with a specialist.
Delay in care is one of the major reasons for poor outcomes in people who sustain a fracture (ie broken bone).
3. Begin increasing your calcium and Vitamin D intake immediately.
4. You get one shot at a truly great recovery-Listen and follow your doctors instructions carefully once you see them.
