Strengthening Exercises to Recover from a Fractured Humerus

Share

ย 

The humerus, or arm bone, extends from the shoulder to the elbow joint, helping position the hand during daily activities such as eating. A break to this lengthy bone in the upper arm requires medical attention. Treating a fractured humerus most commonly involves immobilization through the use of a collar and cuff or a cast for about six to eight weeks, depending on the severity of the fracture. Following recovery from a broken shoulder involves physical therapy exercises to help regain the shoulder joints natural range of motion, strength, and normal functioning in the arm and shoulder.
