In brief: Speed

Unless there is something unusual, there is not a biologic way to increase the speed of fracture healing.

In brief: Time & stim

Your fracture will heal as programed by ur body.
One way that may speed up healing it to use a bone stimulator. Also if it amenable to surgical rx. You may not need casting and be able to use it earlier, tho this is a surghical procedure and the others are not.
