How To Deal With A Broken Collarbone That Hurts?
Good morning, I want to ask. 7 years ago I had one step fracture, where my bones were overlapping. At that time I was advised to do surgery, but because I was afraid, I ended up being a well-known masseur at my place. My hand is healed, but I can feel the fracture when I touch it, because the bones are sticking up. I often experience aches and pains that bothers me at night, if during the day I move my left hand too much. Even now, my shoulders are not parallel, I can’t lift heavy weights and I can’t use a backpack. Sorry, what should I do? Thank you
Management of fractures should be handled by doctors, especially orthopedists. The complaint that you are experiencing at this time is possible because the bone healing process is not perfect, so there are parts of the bone that are not positioned properly, which makes your current movement limited or difficult to lift certain weights. The imperfect bone healing process can also injure the nerves around the collarbone so that you feel pain.
For that, it would be better if you see a doctor at this time. The doctor will perform a physical examination, and if necessary, you will be advised to do an X-ray examination so that your bone condition can be perfectly visualized.
for now avoid lifting heavy weights and avoid using a bag only on one side of the shoulder. you should use a rensel so that the balance is maintained.
that's all I can answer, hopefully it's useful
