NSAIDS (like advil and aleve) can Affect Bone Healing

A well known fact is NSAIDs (non steroid anti-inflammatory drugs) can slow down bone healing. And like anything, one person will be greatly affected and another almost not at all.

And of course, Physical Therapy is wonderful with their machines to reduce inflammation. There are also homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, etc.
