Clavicle Fracture

The orthopaedic staff at Hand Microsurgery are specialized in providing medical treatment for the upper extremities and can help you recover from clavicle fractures. Most clavicle fractures occur in the middle of bone.

At times, the clavicle bone will break where it attaches to the shoulder blade or rib cage. A direct blow to the shoulder is what causes most clavicle fractures. This can happen during a fall onto the shoulder, a car collision, or a fall onto an outstretched arm.In babies, clavicle fractures can even occur during the passage through the birth canal.
