Default Could threaten his career

The Scaphoid is the most fragile bone in the wrist. Most heal without surgery. However, with some fractures, you can seriously compromise the blood supply and eventually lead to a break down of part of the bone. There is a mention that he will require surgical repair, and this does not bode well for him. The rehab period can be several months. However, he'll be able to ride with a good custom splint. Other athletes like baseball players are more out of luck. If he is too aggressive in his return, he could put too much stress on it and lead to a poor union and can eventually permanently decrease his grip strength. He should have chosen a different bone to break.

And the posts of losers who protect them.



Some of us come here to read meaningful information, not the "first post" comments from a bunch of teenagers who live to be the first post.



GROW UP!

Default Re: Hayden Injured

I too broke my scaphoid bone, but in a mountain biking accident. I hope his doc is better than my first one. I did have the problem where the bone starts to deteriorate after a while. My second doctor had to bone graft it with some bone from my hip and then pin it together. Total cast time from that procedure alone, 12 weeks. Hopefully they'll treat Nicky right! Sounds like they are being aggressive with it, so he'll probably be fine.
