The objective of the present study was to present the case of surgical treatment and rehabilitation of a midshaft clavicular fracture in a national wrestler. This is a case report of a 20-year-old female national wrestler who met a motorcycle accident (July 9, 2014). Postinjury radiographs revealed a midshaft clavicular fracture. She came a month after the accident. She had got a pain. Differential diagnosis revealed spiral oblique midshaft clavicular fracture. The sports medicine staff discussed surgical and nonsurgical options. A surgical procedure of internal fixation with an 8-hole anatomic clavicula plate was performed. In August 2014, she had surgery at Emirdag/Afyon County Hospital. Surgical treatment for clavicular fractures is becoming increasingly common. We suggest that new rehabilitation protocols for clavicular repairs should be investigated now that surgical treatment is being pursued more frequently. More aggressive treatment procedures and rehabilitation protocols for clavicular fractures have evolved in recent years. With these medical advancements, athletes are able to return to play much more quickly without compromising their health and safety.
