I also have this, probably due to arthritis. Hurts like hell when I do certian things, like lift anything, press my arms toward each other, reach across my body, or push outwards (like to open a sliding window). And I'm beginning to get it in my other SC joint. My (new) OS (just yesterday) said nothing could be done, that you can't replace the end of the bone because there are so many critical blood vessels and nerves right behind it. However, I think he just isn't confident enough to do it. Check out where they actually replaced an entire clavicle. In England, unfortunately. Ann

Hello, I recently posted on the community feedback asking if anyone could advise me on my shoulder problem.Since then I have been diagnosed with sternoclavicular joint subluxation but it is still going to be about 6 months before I will see an orthopedic consultant, the complication is that my clavicle dislocates and then relocates itself everytime I lift my arm (the joint has been doing this for at least 5 years, everytime I move my arm!)does anyone know of a brace for anterior sternoclavicular subluxation? I have been told that I will need surgery does anyone know what procedures are used in the uk or what the recovery time is for this kind of problem? Any information would be fab,I'm almost at my wits end with the pain. Thanks. Grace xx
