tibia hairline fracture?

I am 12 weeks on from my hairline fracture of my left tibia, It is giving me no pain and my mobility is fine, when is it safe to play contact sports again such as football?

Re: tibia hairline fracture?

It takes a second of third xray for the doctor to release you to full contact sports. The xrays will show bone growth around your break.
