Humeral Mid-Shaft Fracture
The humerus is the bone that connects the shoulder to the elbow. A break of the mid-shaft does not typically involve the shoulder or elbow. Symptoms may include swelling, bruising, pain or tenderness to the touch, and/or a deformity (“My arm doesn’t look right”). The goal of treatment is to realign the bone into correct position for proper healing. Depending on the break alignment, surgery may or may not be recommended.
