Rapid Pain Relief
Our skeleton is made of bones. This is the frame for our body. Bones support all of our body weight. Bones protect the softer parts of the body. Bones are made of living tissue. They grow more rapidly when we are young. They begin repairing themselves the moment they are broken. The center of a bone is called marrow. It is softer than the outer part. Bone marrow has cells that become red and white blood cells.
You have been given a cast to help your broken bone or torn ligaments heal. A cast can help keep the injured area from moving so you can heal faster without risk of repeated injury. How long you'll need to wear your cast depends on the type of injury you have and how serious it is. Normally casts are worn between 4 and 6 weeks.
