    Given that there is a traumatic onset for your pain it is very important that you get your shoulder/collarbone looked at by a professional (osteo/chiro/physio). The fact that it has been ongoing for approximately 16 months is probably the reason why it has gradually affected your chest, neck and jaw. The chronic nature of the injury has possibly caused some muscular imbalances (weak/tight muscles) however I am confident your injury can be fixed. If you have any further questions or uncertainty please feel free to contact me at the clinic.
