Fractures to the Wrist, Arm and Shoulder
Arm injuries can be the result of traumatic accidents such as car accidents and slip-and-falls. These types of accidents often cause fractures, including those to the:
Forearm and wrist
- Distal radius fracture/Colles’ fracture - a break in the wrist caused by falling on outstretched arms
- Distal ulnar fracture - a break caused by falling on outstretched arms
- Intra-articular fracture - a break that extends into the wrist joint
- Extra-articular fracture - a break that does not extend into the wrist joint
- Distal humerus fracture - a break of the upper arm bone in the joint
- Radial head fracture - a break of the lower arm bone in the joint
- Olecranon fracture - elbow fracture
- Proximal humerus fracture - a break of the upper arm bone in the joint
In the most catastrophic cases, amputation of all or part of the arm may be necessary.
If you need surgery for a broken arm, the surgeon may use pins, screws, plates or external fixation to repair the break. In some cases, the patient may not recover full range of motion or use of the arm after surgery. Depending on your occupation and lifestyle, losing full use of your arm may considerably impact your life. We can work with medical experts and economists to demonstrate the effect your injury has on your life and your family.
