In brief: Depends
Hand fractures can take anywhere from two to eight weeks to heal.
This depends on your age (we heal faster when we are young), and the location and severity of the fracture.

In brief: 6 weeks
It usually takes a hand fracture 6-8 weeks to heal and another 4 weeks for bones to remodel and regain their native strength.
However, exercises can be started as early as 3-4 weeks following an injury to maintain hand flexibility.
