If you’re getting an imaging procedure, chances are that you may broken a bone. Breaking bones is not a delight as it’s probably one of the worst pains someone can experience. Breaking bones can be a long journey of therapy and rehabilitation to get your bones back to wear they were. However, some bones hurt more to break than others. Let’s take a look at the top 4 bones that hurt the most to break.


1.)   Femur

The femur is the longest and strongest bone in the body. Located in the thigh, the femur stretches from the hip to the knee. Since the femur is so large, you could imagine how much pain someone might go through when this bone is snapped in two. This injury is severe and can take a long time to try and recover from.


2.)   Tailbone

You could probably imagine that this injury is highly painful. A broken tailbone can prevent you from doing various activities such as, sitting, going to the bathroom comfortably. Even sleeping on your back is off limits! Yes, the pain of this broken bone is terrible, but the recovery process is truly a hassle.


3.)   Ribs

Breaking your ribs can be terribly distressing and quite painful. Once you break your ribs it hurts to eat, breathe, and sleep. Unfortunately, the ribs can be pretty easy to break, so be careful.


4.)   Clavicle

You’re probably asking, what’s a clavicle? The clavicle is the bone that connects the arm to the body and is better known as the collar bone. The break of this clavicle usually occurs in the middle of the bone. If you have a severe break of the clavicle you may need surgery, and even minor breaks will require a sling for recovery.
