A shoulder fracture occurs due to injury or trauma, such as a direct fall onto the arm or shoulder, sports injury, or car accident. Different types of shoulder fracture may include clavicle fracture, scapula fracture, and proximal humerus fracture. Common symptoms may include shoulder pain, swelling or bruising, tenderness, redness, shoulder stability, and deformity. It is worth noting that an untreated fracture may lead to either a nonunion or a delayed union, and the symptoms will continue to worsen over time.

To diagnose a shoulder fracture, your GP may order advanced imaging tests to determine the severity of your condition and the exact location of your fracture. The diagnostic tools to evaluate the shoulder fracture may include X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and musculoskeletal ultrasound. Some shoulder fractures may be treated with non-invasive methods, while others require more complex surgical treatments to repair the fractured bones.

For most non-displaced shoulder fractures, conservative techniques are enough. These can include rest, icing, immobilization of the affected areas through sling or brace, painkillers, and physical therapy or exercises. Make sure that you are following the conservative measures under the instructions of your GP for better results.

Shoulder surgery may include placing plates, wires, screws, or sutures. This is more often needed if an injury to the shoulder socket (glenoid) or when broken bone pieces are severely out of place. Most shoulder fractures may heal in about six weeks; however, a complex case may take longer to heal. Experts suggest some preventive tips to avoid shoulder fractures. Always warm up your shoulder before exercises and sports. Increasing shoulder strength help makes your shoulder more flexible and robust, preventing shoulder fracture during trauma.

For athletes and other people whose occupations require them to work overhead a lot, cross-training may be an excellent way to avoid injury while maintaining their physical fitness.

Shoulder braces help promote the healing process by limiting the unnecessary shoulder movement and compressing the soft tissues of the shoulder. 360 relief provides you with the best shoulder supports that can help improve the shoulder fracture.
