That would be "clavicle" and "subluxation" (probably a class 1 dislocation).

It would help if you clarified which end of the clavicle you have a problem with. I've managed to slightly dislocate (that "class 1" thing) both ends of one of my clavicles. It has no effect, for the most part, after it has healed. I never notice the one at the shoulder (acromioclavicular joint) any more, but it was probably 15 years ago. The one at the sternum (sternoclavicular - or SC - joint) was early this year, and sometimes still aches. But neither really limits my MA activity.

If you actually dislocated it, it'll hurt at that end. So, does it hurt at your shoulder (on top)? Or close to the sternum, on the side at the base of your neck? You might also have pain nearby - I had referred pain behind the clavicle about 1/3 of the way from the sternum - and that was actually worse than the pain at the joint.

If there's no pain, I doubt it's a significant issue. "Subluxation" is a term some chiropractors over-use. Have you had it looked at by an orthopedist or sports medicine specialist?

By not in depth, what do you mean? Has it been diagnosed by an actual doctor, or did a chiropractor tell you that you have the issue?
It was diagnosed by a sport doctor, but he didn't give more information. He also said that either I get surgery or train the chest.

Surgery for something that barely bothers you? That seems more than a bit extreme, and "surgery or exercise" seems an odd option. I'd talk to an orthopedic specialist about it.
