Re: Numb Fingers after Broken Collar Bone

Might be a problem with your ulnar nerve or a nerve problem directly related to the collarbone injury, like a thoracic outlet syndrome. (some form of TOS is common after motor vehicle accidents where there's upper body injury)

There are various treatments for both conditions; anti-inflammatory medication, splints, physical therapy, surgery, etc. But it all depends of your individual condition and situation. See your orthopedist.

Re: Numb Fingers after Broken Collar Bone

well, i am no specialist in the field, if the same had happened to me, i would have taken it very seriously, and would have certainly liked to have a profeesional opinion from a good doctor. coz i had a minor sports accident, and i have fractured my collar bone once, but this sort of thing never happened!
