more about Clavicle Fracture

Collarbone fracture

  • The clavicle is the bone located between the shoulder and the chest.
  • Clavicle Fracture is one of the most common fractures. Over 80% of Clavicle Fractures occur in the middle third of the clavicle. The main cause of fracture is trauma, such as falling on the shoulder or a direct blow to the clavicle with a heavy object.
  • Patients may feel pain, especially when they try to lift their arms. A bump is seen at the site of fracture. Most cases of Clavicle Fracture can be treated with simple arm support (figure-8 dressing) for 4-6 weeks. Nonunion, or failure to mend, is rare.
