Doc recommends starting rehab after a medial end clavicle-fracture after only 4weeks to prevent a stiff shoulder. X-ray doesn't show union. Too fast?

Doc recommends starting rehab after a medial end clavicle-fracture after only 4weeks to prevent a stiff shoulder. X-ray doesn't show union. Too fast?

Rehab clavicle Fx: It usually takes 12 weeks for fractures to heal, so I would not expect to see significant callus formation this early. As long as the fracture is adequately reduced and immobilized, healing should occur. Lack of shoulder movement over a prolonged period can result in adhesive capsulitis. A licensed physical therapist will be able to guide appropriate therapy to prevent this condition. ...Read more

X-ray of an undiagnosed healed clavicle fracture showed bony bump formed very close to the coracoid, causing sharp pain during sleep. Any suggestions?

X-ray of an undiagnosed healed clavicle fracture showed bony bump formed very close to the coracoid, causing sharp pain during sleep. Any suggestions?

Sharp pain during: sleep would unlikely be linked solely to a bone bump. One must asses the soft tissue structures near that region as well as the joints close to that region, and the ligments that hold the clavicle, the coracoid and the acromion in reaaltionship to each other., as a start. The bone bump may ne a so called red herring, a finding that is not realted to the real issue or can indirectly linked. ...Read more

Clavicle fracture for my fourteen year old sister. Recovery time?
