    At that they have many different ways to treat broken leg.

     You find a piece of wood or something hard to rap it in cloth or something that you could rap the wood or hard material with the leg. Made some rocks cold from a river and leave the rocks on top of the leather for about 20-30 minutes. Leave the cast on until the leg recovers. Rest your leg and don’t do any work.

    They make sure there were no other injuries. Also, they would hold the person down, then pull the broken bone back into place as best as they could. When it felt about right, they would splint with two pieces of wood or a branch and hope it would work.
