Hi Mark I've had some experience with these injuries an had success on the track with the following treatment,
Buy a really good blister, as your muscleman will recommend a series of applications which need to be followed an plenty of rest in between.

Mark, you could also try Zheng Gu Shui, the one for bones. It is very effective, and helps the tendons around the bone as well. However, if there is no fracture apparent, read what I have said a bit further down on the topic, suspect shoulder problem, about the spine. It may help you and good luck.

A lot of time working in parallel runs ie 9 months. Get yourself 3 tubs of equiblock from America to stat off with and learn how to use it . It doesn't show in a swab . This even works the same on 4 1/2 year old dogs coming back to racing in FFA company . Don't try and change the steps though .
