Bryony Frost fall update

Following Bryony’s fall at Aintree she saw Shoulder Specialist Geoff Graham who recommended a period of rest followed by reassessment after a few days to determine the nature of her shoulder problem. At the same time the CT scans performed in Liverpool were reviewed by specialists in London who confirmed no new bony injury but in light of Bryony still reporting discomfort in her back a more detailed MRI was carried out. 

This has showed an area of bone bruising in a single vertebra with a stable fracture. Following medical advice Bryony has reluctantly agreed not to return to riding until sufficient healing has taken place and will also use the opportunity to address her shoulder issue. She will work with members of the IJF Rehab Team to enhance her fitness and performance during this break from competition.

Following a fall at Aintree on Thursday Bryony Frost was taken to Aintree Hospital for assessment

As is standard practice for a high speed fall she underwent a CT Trauma Scan. This did not show any new fractures or other injuries that needed immediate medical or surgical treatment.

Bryony was discharged the same day and will be going home for a period of rest and rehabilitation. During this time further assessments will be undertaken to see if any soft tissue injuries become apparent which may need further investigation or specific treatment.

Bryony remains in good spirits and hopes to be riding again soon once she has recovered from this fall. She is grateful for the prompt care she received and for the good wishes from her colleagues and the public.
