How long does it take a fractured hand to heal?Did you ever hear of a hand healing in four weeks?

  1. : Everything depends upon several factors, such as the type of fracture, the location, and the age of the person. [The younger the person, normally, the quicker the rate of healing]. Some fractures can, indeed, heal in 4 weeks, and others might take several months…it all depends upon the factors involved. I hope this helps to answer your basic question. If you have a specific case in mind, you would have to ask the treating doctor, as that would be the only person who could tell you the specifics for that injury.usually it takes 4 weeks for the fracture to become stable, but full healing won’t occur for @ 8 to 10 weeks.
