Tina chose to have her fracture plated and was advised by her surgeon to stay in an arm sling for eight weeks. With pressure from horse owners to compete and a business to run, she wore ClaviBrace and upperarm gaiter combination and competed three horses safely, four weeks sooner than would normally have been possible.
Wearing the combination ensured that her collarbone, not only broken but made fragile, with eight screws inserted to hold the plate, gave Tina the confidence and security to compete sooner.
