Clavicle Fractures

Clavicle fractures, or collarbone fractures, are common orthopedic injuries that can occur due to various factors, such as falls, sports-related accidents, or motor vehicle collisions. The clavicle is a vital bone that connects the shoulder blade (scapula) to the breastbone (sternum) and plays a crucial role in the stability and mobility of the shoulder. When a clavicle fracture occurs, it can lead to pain, limited arm movement, and discomfort.

Types of Clavicle Fractures

Clavicle fractures can be categorized into three main types:

Midshaft Fractures: These are the most common type, occurring in the middle part of the clavicle.

Distal Fractures: Located near the shoulder, these fractures affect the outer end of the clavicle.

Proximal Fractures: These fractures occur near the sternum, affecting the inner end of the clavicle.
