My age is 26, I got a clavicle fracture from an automobile two wheeler accident in which I slipped off road and fall on my right shoulder. The x-ray shows a single dislocated fracture in the middle of clavicle bone. Doctor has advised me to take rest. A plastered bandage is added on shoulder and the hand is kept in a sling to make sure it doesn't moves. I am on TAXIM-O DT-100 one tab morning and evening . FLEXON one tab morning, afternoon and evening. ENZOMAC one tab morning and evening. And one multi vitamin tab in afternoon. Doctor said I have to keep plaster bandage for 3 to 4 weeks. Please help me know how can I speed up my recovery. Please provide your orthopaedic medical suggestions.
Keep it still and do what you're told with the sling etc. Eat a balanced diet. There isn't much else you can do it takes time for bones to knit. My son had one at 15, when he was in a sledding accident. They put a figure eight strap on him and he always ate good, try stopping a teenage boy from eating, lol... it took about 4 weeks until it was healed. You can't speed the process of making new bone to knit them together. Sometimes you just have to wait for your body to do what it does. Not everything can be rushed because you're impatient.
I'm sorry but I would recommend the 6 weeks of arm immobility that I assume the Orthopaedic doctor suggested. (I've broken one of mine three times in two places). A friend who didn't follow the instructions and at 4.5 weeks rebroke his just turning the wheel on his car one handed (power steering).
I don't know of any real ways of hastening bone regrowth but following instructions has been most successful for me.
