What is a Clavicle Fracture?

Description of the disease

A clavicle fracture is an injury to the clavicle, which can occur as a result of trauma, such as falling onto an outstretched arm or shoulder. This condition can cause pain and restrict shoulder movement.


  • Closed fracture: when the skin over the fracture is not damaged.
  • Open fracture: when the skin is damaged and the bone may be visible through the wound.


  • Pain in the area of the clavicle.
  • Swelling and bruising.
  • Restriction of shoulder movement.


A clavicle fracture usually occurs due to trauma, such as a fall or a blow to the shoulder.


Diagnosing a clavicle fracture may require X-rays or a computed tomography scan.


Treatment of a clavicle fracture may include wearing a special brace, applying ice, taking anti-inflammatory medications, and, in some cases, surgical intervention.


Avoid situations that may lead to shoulder injury, use protective gear when participating in sports.


A clavicle fracture is treated by an orthopedic surgeon.
