If I recently had a broken arm will the vibrations from a commercial flight cause damage?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Direct trauma might, but vibration at such low levels as those experienced during commercial traveling should not.

In brief: Not expected to..

Noi would not expect it to however be aware that swelling and pain may feel worse at times with a change in cabin pressure.
Be prepared with medication on hand especially an anti inflammatory. Fyi I have never had a patient have an issue with internal hardware or fixation for a metal detector for an upper extremity injury.
