Patient : Hi i broke my collar bone in the middle of it about a month ago and they said surgery was not required but they gave me a figure 8 brace, but i have been wearing a sling. Last night i tried to get up from my chair and jerked my arm up and ever since then i have been in pretty bad pain all along the top of my shoulder, back part of the shoulder, and a lot of pain in my neck (probably a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10). what might have happened?
