"As Harry got to his feet, he felt strangely lopsided. Taking a deep breath he looked down at his right side. What he saw nearly made him pass out again. Poking out of the end of his robes was what looked like a thick, fleshcoloured rubber glove. He tried to move his fingers. Nothing happened. Lockhart hadn't mended Harry's bones. He had removed them."
—Description of this spell's effects[src]

Brackium Emendo[1] is the incantation of a healing spell that can be used to mend broken bones[2]. It is unknown if this particular spell is a legitimate healing spell or just a variation of one.


If the spell is executed improperly, as was done by Gilderoy Lockhart in September of 1992, the targeted bones will be removed rather than fixed[2]. If such an incident occurs, Skele-Gro can be used to re-grow said bones[2].



The word "brackium" is derived from Latin "bracchium" meaning "forearm" or "arm"[3]; "emendo" is a Latin word meaning "mend" or "fix". Altogether, the incantation would read "mend the forearm".
