Bone healing is a very interesting process that demonstrates how complex and effective our body is. When a bone fracture occurs, the body sends a signal that it is time for repair. This signal, which is thought to be transmitted through the bloodstream, reaches the stem cells of the bone. These form at the site of the fracture some cartilage structure required for the orderly growth of bone tissue. The osteoblasts, the bone cells, then begin to form bone tissue directly on that cartilage frame. Finally, the cartilage is removed and more osteoblasts fill the space. The result is a solid, dense and durable bone, probably even firmer than before.
