Proximal Humerus Fracture
Proximal humerus fractures are a break of your upper arm bone. The upper arm bone, called the humerus, is part of the bones that make up the shoulder joint. Symptoms include severe pain and swelling, bruising, inability to move the shoulder, a grinding sensation with shoulder movement, and a deformity (“It does not 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.
