Do broken bones in the leg grow back stronger after they are break?

Do broken bones in the leg grow back stronger after they are break?

Not usually: A leg bone fracture will appear on x-ray to have more calcium in the healing area (for a while), but a bone's strength depends on the microscopic structure inside the bone, not just the amount of calcium. In a growing child, a well-healed bone can be stronger 6 months after the break, than before the break, because the child is now older so all his bones should be stronger than 6 months earlier. ...Read more

I feel like i need to stretch my legs but can't get them to stretch enough. I've looked up RLS but the symptoms don't seem the same.

Do formal stretching: As we age, our tendons and ligaments get "stiffer" and have less water in them, requiring more consistent (and athletic-style) stretching. Restless legs are leg twiches and spasms that occur when people are asleep, actually affecting the quality and quantity of sleep, and potentially causing daytime drowsiness and even falling asleep at the wheel.
