What Are The Different Types Of Shoulder Fractures?

Shoulder fractures are common for athletes and sports people. Also sudden accidents while exercising, weight lifting or any other mishap can lead to shoulder fracture. The shoulder joint is one of the most mobile and delicate joints of the body. There are several bones in shoulder that can break or fracture. To analyse the type of fracture, X-ray & diagnostic image test are conducted. The diagnostic images can provide additional information about the fracture condition. Sometimes along with fractures, the ligaments or internal tissues can also get damaged or torn. It is through these images the condition is assessed.

Types of fractures

The shoulder has a ball and socket joint and is highly mobile. It consists 3 bones- clavicle or the collarbone, scapula or the shoulder blade and proximal humerus. The bones are interlinked.

  • Clavicle or collarbone fracture- It is one of the common kind of fracture. You will feel like your shoulder is sagging down if your collarbone is fractured. Common symptoms are swelling and sharp pain.
  • Scapula or shoulder blade fracture- it is a flat and triangular bone that connects the collar, clavicle and humerus. It is one of the strongest bones so doesn't break easily. A direct hit can cause this bone to break down into pieces.
  • Proximal humerus fracture- this fracture can be a result of shoulder dislocation. The humerus gets popped out of the socket.
