Possibly bruised or fractured collarbone?

Hey guys,

I've been having pain in my right lower collarbone area. The bone near the bottom seems to be swelled or popping out more than the left. The pain is tender (not sharp or really painful) and the area around it are also tender/sore.

I am pretty sure i injured it about 4 days ago weight lifting specifically while doing incline bench and dips. The day after i was just sitting at work in a hunched bad posture and the pain suddenly hit me.

Specifically, it hurts when i press on the bone, and i feel it also when i stretch my arm straight up, across my chest, and backwards.

I think it has improved a bit since the initial injury. ALSO, I didn't think it was serious at first so I continued to workout (doing pushups and bench and shoulder presses) the day after as well for about two more days because i could push through the pain and thought it was just sore.

What kind of injury do i have? Or is it even my collar bone or perhaps a ligament or tendon or chest muscle?

I am very worried now and in alot of stress because it hasn't healed yet!

Thanks!

Re: Possibly bruised or fractured collarbone?

It's more likely to be a muscle or tendon problem than a bone problem.

Take a few days off from weight lifting, and ice it for 20 minutes at a time a few times a day. Gentle stretching might help, but don't stretch far enough to cause pain.

If it doesn't improve with rest and ice, get it checked out.
