For those that have broke their collar bones?

Postby Broken rugby player » Fri Aug 12, 2011 12:07 pm

Just out of interest?

I broke mine must be 4 years ago now and ended up having to have it plated and also key hole surgery on shoulder.

For those that have broken theirs, do you ever find every now and again that you wake up in morning and find your shoulder stiff, hurts, aches where break was???... is this normal or is it just me?

thanks in advance for any responses

broke neck, both shoulders and hand (three separate cycling accidents) -- but yes, often quite stiff and painful in the morning (hand is in pain as i type this) ... shoulders have gotten left stiff with time (4+ years); neck and hand still having significant issues. my understanding is a combo of stretching and PT help ...

Broke the same one twice :roll: first as a child and then as a teenager and have never suffered any further pain since.

Broke my left collarbone 35 years ago. It doesn't ache, the only time I notice it is when lying on my left side and then the shoulder sort of 'folds over' more than the right one and makes the odd click. Don't feel it otherwise.

All the bones I have broken ache in the morning, especially if I have slept really funny, and I also notice changes in the pressure of the air a bit. Can sometimes feel a bit odd if we are getting a storm quite randomly, but normally it is ok.

Broke my left one 11 or 12 years ago (slightly misaligned) it still hurts occasionally and puts me in a bad mood,

Snapped my scapula 2 years ago but that doesn't cause me any problems.
