    A clavicular fracture most often occurs as a result of falling on an outstretched arm. It can also occur as a result of a direct blow. The amount of time required for healing depends upon the age of the patient, the type of fracture, and the location of the fracture. Normally, the younger the person, the more quickly they will fully heal. If this question if for an injury you recently suffered, I will need the above information to give you a more specific healing time. Please let us know if we can help you any further.

      Im an 18 yr old girl. A month ago I was in a car accident, and broke my collar bone. The cause of the break was the seatbelt. The bone is broken a little bit past the middle towards my shoulder. The bone looks like a slice and it sticks up out of my skin. My orthopedic told me to leave it in sling and come back in 10 days, if it doesnt start to heal, ill need surgery. I go back to him, he took xrays and said it pretty much looks the same, sometimes it doesnt start healing after 6 weeks. The bone is not sticking up as much and I’m not in so much pain. I was wondering if this is normal for it not healing and if the sling is ok, and if surgery is a safe thing to do for it. thank you.

    He is a strong kid, and wants to get back to hockey as soon as he heals fully.

    How long was your son off the ice? My son also broke his and it has been 8 weeks and the doctor still won’t let him play. It was broken almost through the skin, but he has felt good since week 2. I would like any advise you have.
