Broken collar bone

Hey guys,

I broke my collar bone about two and half weeks ago in a motorcycle accident. I'm still in a sling and in a bit pain still. I have some follow up X-rays coming up at the end of next week (4 weeks after accident) and will obviously under go the appropriate physiotherapy/rehab (I'm currently a client of perhaps one of the best in NZ).
But I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar injury and had any problems with cleaning a barbell or front squatting etc after a broken collar bone? I'm a little concerned because like most broken collar bones, I'll have a bump where the fracture was.

Thanks,
Warren

Re: Broken collar bone

Thanks for your reply Sean.
And these people haven't experienced any discomfort whilst oly lifting or having the barbell in the rack position?
Can't wait to get out if this sling and start my rehab! Mobility WOD here we come!
