Shoulder Fracture

A shoulder fracture is a break in one of the bones that make up the shoulder joint. The shoulder is comprised of three main bones: the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humerus (upper arm bone). Fractures can occur in any of these bones due to trauma, falls, or direct impact, and they can range from simple cracks to complex breaks involving multiple pieces.
