- Joining InjuredTrackWorld…
Welcome to the club and obviously sorry that you’re injured. 🙁 I finished a ride with a broken collar bone, no choice as I had to get back to the car.
Actually, on a sensible note, I really regret not getting it looked at further down the line. Ended up with a lop-sided body without full movement that just happened to be the same side as the shoulder separation many years later.
Seriously, do keep an eye on it otherwise it may come back to haunt you! Healing vibes sent. 🙂

There’s another thread on this at the moment but despite the distance I cannot reccomend a trip to see the guys at physioclinic.net in ipswich. I broke mine in to 4 bits, saw them 1 week after. No sling after that, more movement and less pain. 2 further weeks riding on the road. 2 more after that a week in scotland mtbing flat out without any problems.Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Rode out to Derwent Res today to see the Dambusters flypast. Met richpips in Hayfield, we rode up over Mount Famine and, descending Roych Clough, the front wheel hooked into a rut and highsided me, I landed right on the edge of my shoulder.
Picked myself up, walked down to the bottom where Rich was waiting. Pushed/rode up to Rushup Edge and stuck to the road after that riding down Winnats, through Hope, Thornhill and up the off-road trail up the right hand side of Ladybower. Watched the flypast from the Whinstone Lee Tor track, rode back down it then Rich headed off to pick his kids up from school and I rode to Edale for lunch at the cafe. Got the train home from there as everything was quite hurty by then.
Took myself off to the nice folk at Stepping Hill and they gave me an x-ray showing the neat inch of collarbone right at the end that’s not attached to the rest of it.
Lessons learnt: don’t ride 25 miles with a broken collar bone. 🙁Posted 4 years ago
Still, got the Giro, Tour of California and Tour Series to keep me entertained. Dr reckoned 6 weeks off – there must be people who can give me more positive tales of recovery than that?DracSubscriber
Been about 15 years since I did mine possibly more but I did 5 weeks then went back to work and started riding the bike, the Dr recommended 6 but I was bored after 3 so went to see them. They told me if I felt happy to I could go back which is what I did.
Never seen a physio not even one with pew pew lasers, spoke to a Physio friend though who gave me exercises. Dr and the Physio friend told me to only wear a sling when it was too painful to move or hold it in position myself but as I say that was 15 years ago so advice may have changed.Posted 4 years ago
