Shoulder fracture compensation claim from a leading UK personal
A fracture involves a partial or total crack through a bone.
The break in a bone usually occurs as a result of an impact
injury, such as a fall or blow to the shoulder. A fracture
usually involves the clavicle or the neck (area below the
ball) of the humerus.
What are the signs of a shoulder fracture and how
is it diagnosed?
A shoulder fracture that occurs after a major injury is usually
accompanied by severe pain. Within a short time, there may
be redness and bruising around the area. Sometimes a fracture
is obvious because the bones appear out of position. Both
diagnosis and severity can be confirmed by x-rays.
How is a shoulder fracture treated?
When a fracture occurs, the doctor tries to bring the bones
into a position that will promote healing and restore arm
movement. If the clavicle is fractured, the patient must at
first wear a strap and sling around the chest to keep the
clavicle in place. After removing the strap and sling, the
doctor will prescribe exercises to strengthen the shoulder
and restore movement. Surgery is occasionally needed for certain
Fracture of the neck of the humerus is usually treated with
a sling or shoulder immobiliser. If the bones are out of position,
surgery may be necessary to reset them. Exercises are also
part of restoring shoulder strength and motion.
