A clavicle fracture can be a painful and debilitating injury, impacting your daily life and limiting your range of motion. But fear not, there is hope for a full recovery with the expert care provided by TruOrtho and the skilled hands of Dr. Jamie Lynch, a renowned orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine.
Clavicle fractures, also known as collarbone fractures, are common among athletes, particularly those involved in contact sports or high-impact activities. These fractures can occur due to a fall, direct impact to the shoulder, or even during a sports-related collision. Additionally, clavicle fractures are often seen in skiing accidents or bicycle accidents. When faced with a clavicle fracture, seeking prompt and specialized medical attention is essential for a successful recovery.
At TruOrtho, Dr. Jamie Lynch and her team understand the challenges associated with clavicle fractures and are dedicated to providing personalized care tailored to each patient's needs. The first step in the road to recovery is a thorough evaluation and diagnosis. Dr. Lynch will carefully assess the extent of the fracture and any associated injuries to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
Treatment for clavicle fractures can vary depending on factors such as the location and severity of the fracture, age, and overall health of the patient. In some cases, non-surgical methods like immobilization with a sling, pain management, and physical therapy may be sufficient to promote healing. However, for more complex fractures or cases involving displacement, surgical intervention may be necessary.
Dr. Jamie Lynch is well-versed in advanced surgical techniques, including plate and screw fixation, to stabilize the fractured clavicle and promote optimal healing if applicable to your fracture. Minimally invasive procedures can be utilized, allowing patients to benefit from smaller incisions, reduced scarring, and quicker recovery times.
Following treatment, the road to recovery continues with rehabilitative therapy and guidance from the TruOrtho team. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in regaining strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the shoulder. Dr. Lynch and her team will closely monitor progress and adjust the rehabilitation program as needed to ensure the best possible outcome.
As patients continue their journey to recovery, the team at TruOrtho will provide ongoing support, addressing any concerns and empowering patients to take an active role in their healing process. Their comprehensive approach to patient care focuses not only on treating the injury but also on helping individuals regain their confidence and return to the activities they love.
