Double Fracture Probably Key To Quicker Recovery


Rossi’s fans are elated with the news he will ride at Aragon. Gee-Gee Inc

Former MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi passed his FIM MotoGP Dr medical check this morning and has thus been cleared to ride at Aragon.

For a guy renown for

A) Not breaking many bones at all and

B) Healing very quickly when he has suffered a broken bone

Rossi’s 22-day span from breaking his leg to passing medical check this time shows again that he’s either very fortunate, is a quick healer and or has access to the best sports medicine available.

That well known Rossi Luck is undoubtedly a factor here. Rossi broke both the fibula and tibia in his right leg. A double fracture of the lower leg can heal faster than just a single break of the tibia or fibula. When only one portion of the lower leg is broken, the healthy span on the other side of the leg can hold the leg apart, making recovery a long process.

With a double break both bones are set, pinned and ostensibly the two spans begin to heal quickly with no outside force holding them apart.
