Why Is My Collarbone Thickened And Jutting Out
I have a severe bone bruise on my ac, along with thickening of the tendons and nerves and fluid under my collarbone, I am a cna doing a lot of lifting?
Probably work: Related repeated motion type of injury. You probably got advice to rest this area. Consult with your doctor for possible workers compensation benefits and alternative functions at your workplace.
Many Possibilities: Under the clavicle you have muscles, lymph nodes, the lung and the pleura (lung Covering). So anything that may affect these parts may cause discomfort or pain. The bone itself may cause some pain if it was injured. You may need to see your doctor if it goes on for a long time.
It's: Normal for them to be prominent especially if you are lean or if you just don't have body fat in that area
Yes: This is normal, especially in thin individuals, they make become more prominent with weight loss
Need more info.: Would need more info. To make determination. History of injury or illness, exam and x-rays would be helpful. I recommend appt. With orthopedic surgeon for this determination.
Unfortunately no: The clavicle is very superficial bone without much soft tissue or muscle coverage; unfortunately, there is no way to truly make the collarbone less prominent; you may want to focus on scapular (wing bone) stabilization exercises.
Probably yes, & not: Only Strange but most likely unhealthy as well; as you have to lose a bunch of weight. Also It might a take awhile, depending on how much you weigh at the moment. At 40 it might be difficult, but not impossible. Discuss it with your PCP first, to ensure you do it in a Healthy way (should you decide to go for it). Good Luck.
Surgical treatment: Surgical repair of a broken collarbone commonly involves an incision paralleling the course of the collarbone centered over the area of the fracture. It involves realigning the fragments and holding them in position to heal in a more normal anatomical alignment. Typically it is held with a conforming plate and several screws. Healing time is typically 6-12 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: This is not abnormal, especially if there has been a previous injury to one. If it is causing you pain or discomfort, go see an orthopedist.
YES: Depends whether the fracture is displaced or not. Non-dosplaced fractures heal even without sling- however you may get disfigurement. Orthopedic referral is required for open fractures and fractures causing neurovascular compromise or tenting of the skin. An xray is necessary to diagnose dosplacement. Talk to your physician if you have any concerns.See 1 more doctor answer
No: I suppose everyone has a different definition of "weird, " but in my opinion every person has a different body image and different needs and things that make them happy, so if this is your thing, I don't see anything wrong with that.
Plate is unusual: The clavicle is the most common fractured bone in the body. Vast majority of time it requires a sling, immobilizing shoulder, pain control, then some physical therapy. If a plate is needed, probably needs to be there at least six months, but that is orthopedic (which I am not) assessment who did the surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you help me, I broke my collarbone about 13 months ago and im just curious should I take the plate out?
This question: Is best for the surgeon who treated you. A unknown doctor on the internet simply doesn't have adequate information to be making recommendations. Take care.
