    I know some techniques about how can one treat a broken bone but I never tried it in real life - luckily. But I'm wondering if you guys have any experiences. Everyone said when I asked my friends that you have to find a stick and attach it to the part where the problem is. Any other suggestions?

    In 1994, I broke my humerus when I slipped in the side of our house. I cannot describe the pain that I went through. The agony was like eternity until I reached the hospital and was given pain reliever. My arm was placed in a cast but the following day, I was brought to a bone specialist who recommended surgery. Anyway, based on that experience, a splinter can probably lessen the pain of a broken bone. Tie a hard object like wood or anything to make the limb go steady. And the broken bone will not be movable when you travel in going to the doctor.

    The important thing to make sure of is to make sure that the patient places the injured part in the most comfortable position. Then immobilize the injured part by placing cushions, cotton pads or pillows around the injured area. The idea of tying with a stick is good but you have to make sure that the patient is comfortable at the position you tie tie stick. Pain should be your guide to know whether you have done it correctly as you await an ambulance.

    Hi Beth. Luckily for me I never broke a bone - luckily since everyone describe it as a horrible and really painful experience! Anyway.. no matter what, I think it would be better to go to an hospital as your first choice. If for some reason you can't, I think you could try to treat it like they would treat it at the ER, with what you can find: put a strong stick on your broken arm, leg, or whatever, and.. well, just wait. In some cases it's better to not move too much, in other cases a bit of movement is better, for less serious injuries.
    Drink milk, eat fruits and vegetables, lean meats, cereals.
    A broken bone is no joke.
