ProCare Clavicle Supports
Clavicle supports are designed to support the clavicle bone in the shoulder area, which can easily be fractured because it is located just underneath the skin, and direct trauma can fracture it. The clavicle connects the upper arm to the body.
Fractures of the clavicle occur primarily in younger individuals, probably due to increased contact sports. Most fractures of the clavicle occur in the middle of the bone or mid shaft and require no aggressive treatment. A clavicle support or splint provides comfort and pain relief until the fracture heals, which typically takes approximately 6 weeks.
