I have never heard of this or seen anything. It appears that since the doctors didn't use a figure 8 on my boy's broken clavicle due to it not being completely broken in two, just at an angle, he is growing with a gradual curvature. His left shoulder, the side broken, is higher then the right. His shirts always hang to the right. If you examine his spine, there is a slight curvature to the right.

Is there anyway to correct this short of rebreaking his clavicle? Thanks

  • Find a good one on one pilates practitioner; check they have experience with sports and/or other injuries and not someone who deals only with getting people super fit. And one that also is familiar with deep tissue massage or rolfing techniques (but this is not essential but is a bonus :-)). Phone around.Your son will learn how to stand, sit and walk in a better way to prevent more curvature and learn how to best use his muscles to avoid other muslces being inncorrectly used due to over compensating. If he does't learn this now he may very well develop severe back problems later.If your sons back is out, he will also benefit from an osteropath in combination with the pilates. The osteopath can do massage and manipulation of the spine. they would also be able to advise you on the praciticality of reseting the clavicle.Agape,searchingsam
