Either way, it's now believed that after a catastrophic injury, and after it stablilizes, some amount of increased heartbeat and exercise does promote quicker healing and recovery.
My first broken leg, in the mid '60's, it was still a belief by some members of the medical society to just rest to recuperate, with no excercise or movement of the parts surrounding the actual injury.
