Marc Márquez has a long recovery ahead of him

"If the radial nerve is affected, the intervention will be much more complicated," reports Dr. José González, a specialist in sports medicine.


Marc Márquez suffered a hard fall at the Spanish GP, which resulted in a fracture of the middle third of the humerus in his right arm, an injury that will have to be operated on next Tuesday in Barcelona. "In the operation to which he is going to undergo an intramedullary nail will be placed as he has no displacement," confirms Dr. Jose González, a specialist in sports medicine, at AS.

In addition to the fracture, it is possible that Marc has affected the radial nerve, something that the doctors of the MotoGP World Championship have not been able to confirm with the explorations carried out at the Jerez circuit clinic. "In the same intervention, they should verify if the radial nerve is affected. If it is affected, the intervention will be much more complicated," continues González.

Finally, we asked Dr. González what the recovery periods for said injury would be: "They will be quite long. This injury is not like a broken clavicle in which screws are placed and in a few days the rider is already on the bike In this case, it will take a month and a half to two months, even if we are talking about a professional pilot, it could take up to three months.
