Fracture Remedy?: Non surgical treatment of fractures should be done very carefully and only under the supervision of a hand surgeon. Your hands are functional tools that you rely on every day to do a variety of activities. Don't risk significant disability! seek attention immediately as the longer you wait, the higher the risk that the problem and the solution become more complex!

Collaborative care: Homeopathic remedies alone cannot repair a compound hand fracture. You need a skilled hand surgeon. Once your bones have been set, though, there are homeopathic remedies which can help with pain, swelling, and healing. You would need an experienced homeopath to work alongside the hand surgeon or orthopedist to select remedies that best apply to your case. These could change as you recover.
