Unless it has punctured the skin (which occurs in a very small amount of cases), the best thing to do - or rather, have one's doctors do, as a fractured clavicle would require a visit to the hospital - is to rest the affected arm and support it with a sling that goes over the opposite shoulder. That, along with prescribed pain relief and time will (in most cases) fix the fracture.

The best way to understand this is to look at a skeleton. YOu can see how the head of the humerus anchors right into the clavicle. Press gently on the head of the humeru…s parallel to the floor and note the pressure the condial exerts in that direction, and the tendency for the clavicle to move, thus indicating it too is being pressed upon. As these bones are in contact, impact is transmitted from one to the other, thus creating a potential for fracture.

The clavicle is at risk to fracture when a person falls on his or her shoulder because the clavicle works like a brace that holds the arm apart from the body. Because the …clavicle is between the arm and the thorax, it is vulnerable to breaks.

Sure, it is possible but you risk permanent disability. Wait for it to heal.
The shock of hitting the ground with the hands travels up the arms, and hits the clavicle with enough force and the angle to fracture it. The impact usually damages some…thing else before it gets that far, but the bones must have been aligned just so for the shock to travel up without damaging anything else on the way up.
As long as the docter/nurse told u too!
A fractured clavicle is a common childhood injury. Doctor's use what is called a figure of eight splint to immobilize the joint so that it can heal, which usually takes ar…ound 8-12 weeks.
