spi-common-clavicle-fracture-1

A break in the collarbone, usually due to impact on the point of the shoulder e.g. a tackle in football. It can also be caused by a fall onto outstretched hand whereby the force of the fall is transmitted up through the bones of the arm to the clavicle.

Signs and symptoms include:

  • Extreme pain around the fracture site.
  • A cracking or snapping sound may have been heard upon impact
  • Deformity or bump in the clavicle when compared to the other side
  • Guarding of the injury by holding the arm of the injured clavicle with the opposite hand
