Brief overview of the episode:

            Clavicle fractures, also known as collarbone fractures, make up about 3% of all fractures. They are most common with men between ages 13-20 years old. The most common causes of a clavicle fracture are falls, bicycle accidents and sports.
            70% of collarbone fractures occur in the mid shaft. About 20% of these will result in surgery to stabilize. The most common stabilization technique (~95%) is called an ORIF (open reduction internal fixation).
            In most cases physical therapy will begin between 2 weeks and 4 weeks post injury. If surgical fixation has occurred this can happen sooner. Physical therapy will focus on increasing ROM, strength and return to activity/sport.
