Fracture healing is followed radiographically at 8 weeks post injury.

If the fracture is healing satisfactorily small paddock exercise for four weeks followed by field exercise for 4 weeks is recommended before additional radiographs 16 weeks post injury are taken.

Return to training is typically 4-6 months post injury.
