Shoulder Fractures

Types of Shoulder Fractures

Shoulder fractures occur when bones in the shoulder break. This often affects the clavicle (collar bone), proximal humerus (top of the upper arm bone), and scapula (shoulder blade). If you're experiencing discomfort or suspect a fracture, it's essential to seek prompt medical attention. Our team of orthopedic specialists can provide accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment options to help you recover and regain mobility in your shoulder. Contact us today for expert care.

Treatment for Shoulder Fractures

Shoulder fractures necessitate immediate and tailored treatment to mitigate pain and restore functionality. Treatment approaches vary depending on the type and severity of the fracture. Conservative methods, such as immobilization with a sling and prescribed pain management, are often employed for less severe fractures or in cases where surgery is not warranted. In more complex fractures, surgical intervention may be necessary to realign the bones and stabilize the shoulder joint. Orthopedic surgeons may utilize techniques like open reduction and internal fixation to ensure proper healing and minimize long-term complications. Regardless of the treatment route, rehabilitation plays a pivotal role in the recovery process, with physical therapy aimed at restoring strength, range of motion, and function to the shoulder.
