You are examining a 25-year-old male who, three weeks prior, fell from his trail bike, causing him to pitch forward over the handlebars and land on the point of the right shoulder. X-rays revealed a fracture involving minimal displacement of the lateral third of the clavicle, proximal to the glenohumeral joint. The patient presents with his right arm in a sling with a prescription from his physician stating, “Right clavicle fracture, examine and treat.” Using the Type 1 through 4 classifications, how would you classify this type of clavicle fracture?
- Type 1
- Type 2
- Type 3
- Type 4
