Have you recently experienced severe trauma to your shoulder during a fall or other accident?
Have you been in a car or other motor vehicle accident or did you get injured playing a sport?
You should be evaluated for a shoulder fracture or broken shoulder as soon as possible.
Broken shoulders and shoulder fractures are fairly uncommon and are usually the result of a traumatic injury from an accident, fall, or collision.
There are two types of shoulder fractures – displaced and non-displaced – and depending on the type of shoulder injuries you’ve suffered, you may or may not need surgical treatment.
