What Is the Treatment for a Dislocated Collarbone?


A dislocated or broken collar bone or clavicle is a common shoulder injury. The treatment is usually dependent upon the degree of displacement of the fracture fragments.

Where there is an excessive displacement that prevents fracture union and healing, it will is advisable to seek orthopaedic advice.
