Re: broken collar bone/ sternum

My son fractured his right collar bone during an ice hockey game. The alignment of the two pieces is out. It seems that the part connecting to the sternum was dislocated, causing the miss-alignment. The doctors we saw till now did not seem to notice this. Can it be re-aligned without surgery? What is the next step? The fracture happened about 12 days ago. He is wearing a sling and shoulder brace.
