Shoulder bruising or fracture


Q: I fell off a push bike three days ago and i have injured my shoulder. since then the pain has relieved a little but not alot although it isd not at all debilitating painwise. swelling has occured at the end of the clavical and the ball joint of my shoulder. ther is no discolouration on the skin in the area. i have pain free mobility too an extent. i can raise my arm past my shoulder and past mid chest with relatively no pain and i can clench my fist as tightly. i am worried i have a fracture on the clavical as i am in another country to my own and have no health insurance. can you advise me on what you think
