Broken collarbone - clavicle fracture

What is a clavicle fracture / clavicle fracture?

One of the most common fractures within the human body is a broken collarbone. The clavicle bone provides the connection between the shoulder, shoulder blade and the sternum. Below the collarbone are nerves and blood vessels that are protected by the collarbone.

The clavicle, also called clavicle in Latin, can break after a fall. The clavicle is superficially located. The clavicle can be seen and felt in many people. It sits at the height of the shoulder and resembles a rib. The clavicle provides stability of the shoulder and provides power transmission over the arm.
In addition, a fracture of the clavicle protects the nerves and blood vessels located just below it.

Causes clavicle fracture

A fracture of the clavicle is most common with a fall on the shoulder. This break is most often seen by cyclists. They fall directly on the shoulder at high speed, with the force being absorbed by the collarbone. Also contact sports where the shoulders come together with high forces have an increased risk. Think of rugby players and martial arts.

It is also possible that someone falls ugly with outstretched arms, the clavicle will also break.

Broken collarbone symptoms

  • Hanging arm
  • Severe pain around the shoulder
  • Failure to lift the shoulder
  • Bump on the clavicle (bone fracture)

Clavicle diagnosis and treatment

Diagnosing a clavicle fracture is relatively easy. The person will be in a lot of pain and will hardly be able to raise his arm.
To allow the collarbone to heal properly, it is important to rest the arm. In addition, a sling can be used. However, it is important that the arm gets movement every now and then, if necessary under the supervision of a physiotherapist. Otherwise, the shoulder can get stuck.

We as Probrace can provide you with a replacement for the sling:

  1. To improve the recovery of a clavicle, the Schoudersling Immo Vest is recommended. This fixes the arm and the shoulder is more retracted, a natural position of the shoulder blade. This stimulates recovery clavicle.
  2. Are you looking for a brace with a little more freedom of movement of the arm? Then choose the Liga flex clavicula Key brace. This brace also provides a passive retraction moment allowing the clavicle to return to its natural position.
  3. Looking for a better price-quality ratio? Then look at the Novamed Clavicle Brace . The brace is similar to the LigaFlex clavicle clavicle.

The same braces are available for children:

  1. Posture holder and collarbone bandage
  2. Thuasne Clavicle Brace
