Fractures, also known as broken bones, are a common injury that can occur from a variety of causes such as falling from a height, being hit by a heavy object, or having a car accident. The bone may be completely broken or just cracked. While fractures will heal on their own over time, there are ways to speed up the healing process and reduce the time it takes for the fracture to fully heal.
One way to speed up the healing process is to use a splint. A splint is a device that is placed on the outside of the limb to immobilize it. This reduces the time taken to heal a fracture by 10x. To apply a splint, right-click the red fracture text in the health panel, then select “Splint”. Crafting a splint requires Ripped Sheets and one Sturdy stick or Plank.
Another way to speed up the healing process is to use a comfrey poultice. A comfrey poultice aids recovery from broken bones when applied as a poultice. To make a comfrey poultice, you will need a Mortar and Pestle and Comfrey x 5. Once the fracture has healed, the player will receive first aid experience.
While using a splint and comfrey poultice can greatly accelerate the healing process, it’s important to note that healing time can vary. Factors that can affect the healing time of a fracture include the location and severity of the break, the patient’s age, and overall health.
It is important to note that even with a splint and comfrey poultice, a fracture usually takes several weeks to heal. However, by following the steps of applying a splint, crafting and applying a comfrey poultice, players can greatly reduce the time it takes for a fracture to fully heal and be able to get back to their adventure as soon as possible.
In conclusion, fractures are a common injury that can occur from a variety of causes. While fractures will heal on their own over time, using a splint and comfrey poultice can greatly speed up the healing process. Be sure to craft and use a splint, and craft and apply a comfrey poultice to aid the healing process. Remember that healing time can vary and factors that can affect the healing process, but using a splint and comfrey poultice will greatly reduce the time it takes for a fracture to fully heal.
