Shoulder Conditions - Fracture of the Collarbone (Clavicle)

A fractured clavicle, or collarbone, is fairly common and occurs most frequently in children and athletes. It is caused by direct trauma to the bone from a hit or fall. This results in pain, deformity, limited mobility of the arm on the side of the break, a grinding sensation when trying to move the arm, bruising and swelling.

Treatment most commonly includes rest, immobilization of the arm and shoulder through use of a sling or brace, and anti-inflammatory medications. Surgery is generally necessary if the bone ends are displaced but often times can be amenable to non-surgical treatment and immobilization.
