Plain in clavicle

I have self Rx'd with distal clavicle osteokysis. Anyone else have this??? Apparently, it can be brought on by "intensive weight training", particularly cleans and bench presses.

Re: Plain in clavicle

I'm sure they told you rest, ice and anti-inflams.... so that's what you should be doing...

I have done this in the past and it does relieve - but it returns. So, it has to be something that can be remedied long-term. Not just several months on (full training) and several months off (no overhead lifting and other things that bring on the pain)...And, I happen to be anti- anti-imflammatories.

Yes. Went to PT MANY times, and she says rotator cuff. I am not buying it, and the exercises she gave me are NOT helping. Always have CONSISTENT pain in the clavicle, and have been working on my cleans non-stop. Read that this was a big aggravating factor in Distal Clavicle Osteolysis...

Re: Plain in clavicle

Perhaps it is otseolysis. I'd want a definitive diagnosis though. This is not something you want to mess around with. It can resolve with time, but it would still be good to know what you are really dealing with. See someone else??

How long did you use the rotator exercises? Did the PT suggest any exercises to avoid?

Last, have you followed up with the PT about your situation? What about finding a second opinion?

Re: Pain in clavicle

I'm not quite sure why you're continuing to do an exercise that is aggravating it.... that's just a bad idea in general.

Also, see an orthopedic doc or different PT.
