Health Tip: Signs That Shoulder Pain is a Broken Collarbone

Health Tip: Signs That Shoulder Pain is a Broken Collarbone


(HealthDay News) -- The collarbone doesn't completely harden until about age 20 years. This makes younger people -- especially participants in contact sports -- more susceptible to a broken collarbone, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says.

The academy says common symptoms of a broken collarbone include:

  • Having a shoulder that droops.
  • Being in too much pain to lift one or both arms.
  • Feeling a "grinding" as you try to lift an arm.
  • Feeling pain when touching the collarbone.
  • Detecting an abnormal bump or swelling on the collarbone.
