A humerus fracture (broken upper arm bone) is often caused by a fall or a high energy injury, such as a motor vehicle accident or contact sports injury. Any fracture will often cause severe pain, swelling, and discoloration (bruising).

 

There are several non-surgical and surgical options to treat this problem depending on the position of your fracture.
