Shoulder Fracture

A shoulder fracture refers to a break in one or more bones in the shoulder joint, which is a ball-and-socket joint that allows for a wide range of motion and is critical for activities such as reaching, lifting, and throwing. Shoulder fractures can occur as a result of a traumatic injury, such as a fall, direct blow, or motor vehicle accident, or from overuse and repetitive stress on the shoulder joint.



  • Direct blow from a fall OR collision OR motor vehicle accident.


  • Pain, swelling, deformity, bruising and tenderness of the joint.
  • Inability to move the shoulder and a grinding sensation while moving the shoulder.


  • Some fractures of Humerus, clavicle, need surgery for fixation of the fracture.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation can help improve the strength and stability of the shoulder and prevent future injury. Wearing proper protective gear and avoiding activities that put excessive stress on the shoulder joint can also help reduce the risk of shoulder fractures.
