A 65-year-old female asked about a 65-year-old female:
How long before two broke bones in a 10 year old arm will heal to go back to dancing and gymnastics?

Healing process: It will take 6-8 weeks for the bones to heal. Dancing can begin immediately. If gymnastics involve any arm exercises, i would tend to wait a bit longer because the arm muscles may show disuse atrophy from wearing the cast.
