Health.com: 14 Surprising Facts About Healthy Bones

Breaks Don't Strengthen Bone

The old saying that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger isn’t true when it comes to broken bones.

When a bone breaks, it doesn’t end up any stronger than before the trauma, Dr. Cosman says. But that’s not to say a broken wristbone won’t be back to fighting shape after recovery.

"Even with osteoporosis fractures, the bone can be just as strong as before the break after it heals," she says. "These fractures generally heal just as well."
