'''''Brackium Emendo'''''<ref name="incantation"/> is the [[incantation]] for a [[spell]] (possibly a [[charm]]) that [[Vanishment|removes]] bones, at the very least those in the forearm. [[Gilderoy Lockhart]] claimed to have used this spell "countless times", though the veracity of this claim is dubious, given that he was mistaken of its effect. The effects of this spell can be reversed with [[Skele-Gro]].

During a [[Quidditch]] match between [[Gryffindor Quidditch team|Gryffindor]] and [[Slytherin Quidditch team|Slytherin]] in [[1992]], [[Harry Potter]] suffered a broken arm from a [[Dobby's Bludger|Bludger]] charmed by the [[house-elf]] [[Dobby]], who was trying to force him to leave [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] and thus be safe from the [[Serpent of Slytherin]]. Gilderoy Lockhart was the first to reach Harry after he landed and, thinking he was casting a spell to mend bones, used ''Brackium Emendo'' on him, requiring Harry to spend that night in the [[hospital wing]] regrowing his bones properly. This incident only served to deepen Harry and [[Ronald Weasley]]'s dislike for Lockhart, though [[Hermione Granger]] attempted to justify it as a simple mistake.<ref>''[[Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets]]'' - Chapter 10 (''The Rouge Bludger'')</ref>
