A fracture of your arm bone near the shoulder may require physical therapy to help improve normal arm function.

A proximal humeral fracture is a type of injury that results near the shoulder joint. β€œProximal” reffers to being close to the body and β€œhumeral” refers to the arm bone known as the humerus.

A fracture to the proximal humerus is typically causes due to significant trauma from an injury to the arm or shoulder. Falling on to the outstretched hand, a forceful pull to the arm or shoulder, and falling on to the side or shoulder are several situations that could cause fracture to the shoulder joint. These are the most common causes for bone injury but are not limited to these.
