In brief: See an ortho doc

I have had an occasional patient who has had problems after a clavicle fracture.
Most people do fine after these however, a small number of patients do not. It is possible to do reconstructive surgery on these and i refer to a very good orthopedist in my area (boston) who does these operations. If you are able to find an orthopedist who is interested in this condition, perhapsyou could get help.
