Your doctor will first conduct a physical examination to
a clavicle fracture. It is vital to seek complete treatment because vital blood vessels and nerves lie underneath the collarbone, which could get damaged when it experiences trauma.
Your doctor will also look for any open wounds over the breakage. In some cases, the bone pushes against the skin, causing it to 'tent,' and too much pressure will result in the bone coming through the skin.
Your doctor may recommend Clavicle X-rays for a variety of reasons including::
Children may experience an incomplete or greenstick type of fracture
A newborn with a critical delivery might have clavicle fractures
