Treating Fracture of the Collarbone in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Fracture of the Collarbone (Clavicle) is a condition that occurs when the part of the clavicle (collarbone) is fractured. A broken collarbone is fairly common, and occurs more often in children and athletes. It is typically caused by a direct trauma to the bone from a hit or fall.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of a Fracture of the Collarbone (Clavicle) are pain and limited mobility of the arm on the side of the break. You may feel a grinding sensation when trying to move the arm, a sagging shoulder, bruising, swelling, or a visible deformity may appear.

Treatment

Treatments may include rest, immobilization of the arm and shoulder, anti-inflammatory medications and surgery may be required.

If you are experiencing shoulder pain, weakness of the shoulder, stiffness of the shoulder or night time shoulder pain, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
