Hi.. The swelling could have occured due to soft tissue inflammation.. The soft tissues aroung the clavicle that were injured may have caused inflammation.. It will slowly regress.. You can assist in faster healing my restricting the movements of the elbow, hot water  bags and good antiinflammatory medications.. A good bedrest can be very useful...
