Historically, how did doctors treat fractures?

More nonoperatively

Forearm_fracture
In ancient, medieval & even colonial times, there were bone setters who treated fractures. Open fractures were often treated with amputations, though many folks died from them. As the concepts of antisepsis and anesthesia came on line, surgery became an option. Even still, fractures were still largely treated with traction or casting. In the last 50 years, surgery has become an option for many.
