The clavicle is part of the shoulder. It is also known as the collarbone. The clavicle is physically connected between the shoulder blade (scapula) and the breastbone (sternum) just above the first rib. It is easy to feel the clavicle. Unlike other bones that are covered with muscle, much of the clavicle is only covered with skin. The clavicle keeps the scapula in position so the arm hangs freely away from the trunk of the body. This allows maximum range of movement of the arm. Interested in learning about the clavicle? Watch the following videos for more details on the clavicle.
