Can The Clavicle Fracture Do The Gym?
Hello, 2 years ago I had an accident and broke my clavicle and still use a pen, is it safe for me to do the gym? because I feel if I have muscle weakness because I have never lifted weight, can I also experience osteomalacia
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In your case, whether or not you are safe to do sports in the gym, will depend on what kind of sports you do, and whether you are able to do it correctly or not.
For example, if you do movements to cultivate leg muscles such as leg extensions and squats, it doesn't matter because it's not related to the clavicle. Likewise, if you do abdominal exercises like thrunch and sit-ups, because it is not related to the clavicle, it is not a problem for you to do.
But if you want to do biceps like bicep curl, for example, this can be safe and can also not depend on the severity, level of recovery, and whether you can still do the movement correctly or not. Some people tend to make a 'cheating' move unconsciously when they are tired of biceps curl, by swinging and moving their shoulders. This can put a strain on your injury and if so, you should not do it.
So in conclusion, any movement that does not involve the movement of the shoulders and upper arms, is not a problem for you to do, such as for example running on a running platform. But for movements that involve this part, first consult yourself with your orthopedic doctor, because the answer will depend on your current condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
