Amazingly, recent studies suggest that Floatation therapy can assist in the healing of broken bones through increased blood flow and its circulation around the damaged area.

for those interested, below is the science behind broken bones:

The Inflammation Stage begins the moment the bone is broken and lasts for around five days. Bone has a very good blood supply due to the channels within its structure. When a fracture occurs there is massive disruption to these channels and a large amount of bleeding from the fracture fragments. This is what causes immediate swelling and bruising in the area of the broken bone. The damaged bone tissue at the edges of the fracture fragments die and the dead cells release chemicals called Cytokines which initiate the healing process.  Following a broken bone, the fracture fragments are returned back into place to help the healing process, this helps to stem the blood flow from the broken bones and substantially reduces the pain.
