clavicle rehab

Wrecked pretty hard this summer, broke a couple of ribs and a collarbone. I just got out of the brace, and the doc has cleared me to resume normal activity, including riding, with the warning of "if it hurts, don't do it". No sort of rehab or PT plan. Yeah, he is supposedly a sports medicine specialist.

What have others done to get back to normal after a clavicle break?

TIA

They listen to their doctor and don't take medical advice from anonymous people that may or may not have the same case history.

I broke mine in a motorcycle wreck (dirt bike into a tree..they don't move much)..same deal. Doctor said it would take time and it did. A year later it still hurts when I do certain things and can hurt doing anything if it moves wrong. Some of my friends have had operations and donor bone stuff done, etc. They say it still hurts the same after all that. Let time do it's stuff.

I had the same thing, resulting from a collision with a car in April. By the time I was finished with therapy for the big deal (fractured pelivs) I had developed a frozen shoulder. Today, my therapist suggested that progress to date, and anticipated, did not justify continuing treatment. Anyhow, TBatty, it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion. Depending on your condition, the longer you wait, the less likelyhood of a complete recovery. That doesn't mean your present doctor is wrong, but in the right context, a second opinion is not very expensive.
