All this talk about plates and "feeling" it makes me glad I didn't choose to have the plate. Even though it is slower to heal naturally I'm glad I chose this route. You hear mixed opinions on natural vs plate. I realize that some fractures there are no choices also some people want the fastest road back to recovery. Do all clavical breaks require physical therapy or just the ones that had the plate. Reason I ask is that I broke my clavical 9 weeks ago and I have full range of motion with no discomfort as of this point and my doctor didn't mention any physical therapy for my injury. Matter of fact, I even played 54 holes of golf Friday shooting in the mid-70's as usual (I'm glad it didn't effect my game).
+1

I let mine heal, and while it took a lot longer, and I missed the rest of the racing season, I think it's going to be better in the long run. I listened to my ortho when he said that the plating may actually weaken the bone.

I had a choice, plate or let it heal naturally and didn't do any specific physical therapy (other than the band strap exercises).

I have full rom and no discomfort now. It took a while, but all is back to normal ('cept the 20+ lbs I gained while being inactive...).

Candie, so glad things are getting taken care of, it looks like your Doc did a great job for you- that fracture looked like a nasty spot to have it happen.

Let us know what you need!

Found my collar bone brake. Happened at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on 4/13/08 at CMRA race during 2nd lap of F1 novice just after T5. The racer inside of me highsided and landed right in front of my bike while I was at lean angle so I ran him over.

Looks almost identical to mine, same shape, same location, 'cept the "middle" piece was in more than two pieces...

I know that pain! Ed is a real when it comes to pushing range of motion but it is sooo worth it in the end. Keep up the rehab Candie, it'll pay off in recovery big time. Make sure Tim doesn't slack on his sammich duties!!

Ed wasn't to bad. It was Doc Sanders that pushed me the hardest! He told me " I thought you were some tough motorcycle chic and not a 92 year old lady!" It was enough to make me lighten up and no be so tense!

Meant to post sooner, just wanted to say I'm glad you're already back up and running, Candie. I was on turn 4 and saw when you went down, and girl you are hardcore, that is all. I thought I was tough until I saw you getting up and now that I saw the x-ray--OWWWW! Lookin' forward to seeing you back out soon
