AC separation: Type 1-3 ac separations are typically treated without surgery. A type 3 indicates you tore the capsule and cc ligaments. If you walk thru most football or hockey locker rooms alot of players have this. A type 5 indicates the clavicle has pierced thru the trapezial fascia. These are generally fixed but can carry a high failure rate of 20%. I would see a shoulder specialist to identify yours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clavicle fracture,2week passed and not healed and also separated more,could keeping at fixed state still may cause healing?
It will heal: The orthopedists have a saying about clavicle fractures: as long as the two ends of the bone are in the same room, it'll heal. Joking aside, clavicle nonunion is extremely rare. Continue using your sling, and avoid contact sports. Healing will take 6-8 weeks. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Orthopedic MD: See an orthopedic MD. I'd do whatever they suggest. Most of the time they do NOT operate on a clavicle fracture. We've also stopped using figure 8 splints. If your break is really bad, the figure 8 will get you a better result if you choose nonoperative approach, but tends to be more pain with this type of splint. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You can't: The clavicle or collarbone is impossible to immobilize completely. The good news is within one to two weeks, the fracture site becomes sticky. That means that the fracture is starting to heal and typically you do not feel the same amount of pain and you no longer feel the fracture pieces moving. In some situations, delayed healing can occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
