if your bone has been fractured, u ll be getting severe pain around your clavicle with some amount of swelling. if you r facing severe joint pain with restriction of movement then its better to consult an ortho doc. if you a having just mild to moderate pain then its just muscle pull

hi,
welcome to the health care magic ,a clear examination of the affected part is itself sufficient to have the diagnosis clear but you feel the mobility is restricted along with consistent swelling then you can straight away go for an x-ray.

thanks and regards !
