Treatment Shoulder Fracture

Request an appointment

    Shoulder fractures are quite wide-spread and account for 5 to 20% of the total number of skeletal injuries. This type of traumas occurs in the form of isolated lesions, less often in combination with other damage to bones and soft tissues. As a rule, shoulder fractures happen as a result of an indirect impact of force (e.g. a fall on an outstretched arm), or a direct impact (e.g. blows to the shoulder area). Unfortunately, a person of any age or gender can get this type of injury. In the Orthopedic Center Touch of Health in Orlando the doctors treat various conditions including broken shoulders, and perform a surgery if required.


    Treatment Shoulder Fracture

    How is the Shoulder Fracture Treated?

    The treatment of the shoulder fracture is prescribed specifically for each patient, depending on the severity of the clinical case and the type of bone damage. Both conservative and surgical treatment is successfully used. The conservative method involves temporary immobilization of the limb by applying a plaster cast or wearing an orthosis. Based on the current condition, the specialist decides which option of the fixing bandage to choose. The duration of fixation is also selected individually and can be from 1 to 2 months. Although, conservative techniques give a positive result, in case of displacement surgical treatment of the shoulder fracture is highly recommended. The advantage of the shoulder repair surgery is that it allows folding all the fragments correctly according to the anatomical features of the shoulder bone. Thus, its motor functions are being restored quickly and the patient can return to his normal activities quickly. The period of full recovery after the surgery depends on the severity of the broken shoulder and how correctly the patient follows all the doctors’ instructions during the rehabilitation process.
