Re: collar bone

my son aged 14 shattered his clavical in 4 pieces two weeks ago he has had a brace on since the injury and the surgeon wants to give it time to see if the bones will heal on their own--currently the bones is still protruding above the skin and the pieces on the x-ray show the bones are not aligned properly. the surgeon does not feel surgery is required to align the bones together but i don't see how they will otherwise? help--p.s my son injured his colar bone playing hockey and is playing in a competitive league and is hoping to make a career out of playing some day

The Simply Stable VOS, valgus overload stabilizer elbow brace is designed to help control valgus overload stresses during functional overhead motions. The overhead motions associated with throwing, tennis and volleyball put a tremendous stress on the elbow joint and ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
