Re: Clavical fracture

My clavical is fractured in the middle with no tendon involvement. I am an o.t. and began active assistive rom within a week and now one week and a day later have full rom against gravity except in horiz add. Question is how to reduce the size of the "bum? Healing seems to be progressing quickly. I have taught a modified yoga class and performed a modified Zero Balancing bodywork session with no problems.

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
