Clavicle. Surgery necessary?
Sean_macb posted:
Hey there. Wanted some insight on a surgery. Today, playing rugby I broke my collarbone. It sucked. But when I went to the hospital they talked about a possible surgery

Now me being an athlete, I love contact sports. I play football, and rugby. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to go ahead with this surgery to avoid injuries in the future (Note: I broke it when I was 1 1/2 but it was on the other side) or just go through the 8 week recovery?

All the best

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
