Treatment options may include rest, immobilization of the arm and shoulder through use of a sling or brace, and anti-inflammatory medications. Surgery is usually required if the fracture is pushing on the skin, has pierced the skin, or is chronically painful.
These lists are not inclusive of all conditions and procedures. In order to obtain a complete and accurate diagnosis, a physician should assess your individual situation. Following diagnosis, your physician will discuss appropriate treatment options with you – both surgical and non-surgical. Schedule an appointment with an Orthopedic ONE physician.
