What is Your Shoulder & Clavicle Region?
You probably already know what the shoulder region is, but you may not know that the clavicle (also known as your 'collar bone') region is interconnected with the function and location of the shoulder. The clavicle consists of a slender, long bone that runs horizontally between the tops of your two shoulders. Interestingly, the clavicle is the only bone that runs horizontally of its length. The other long bones run vertically, in your legs and arms. The clavicle is commonly referred to as the collarbone because it runs directly beneath where your shirt collar would be.
