Shoulder, Arm, Elbow
The forearm is made up of 2 bones namely the radius and ulna. The primary function of your forearm is rotation i.e., the ability to turn your palms up and down. The fracture of the forearm affects the ability to rotate your arm, as well as bend and straighten the wrist and elbow.
The clavicle or the collarbone is the bone that connects your sternum or breastbone to your shoulder. Clavicle fractures, also called broken collarbones are a very common sports injury seen in people who are involved in contact sports such as football and sports involving speed and heights, such as cycling and horse riding.
Fracture of the Scapula (Shoulder Blade)
The scapula (shoulder blade) is a flat, triangular bone providing attachment to the muscles of the back, neck, chest and arm. The scapula has a body, neck and spine portion.
Shoulder injuries most commonly occur in athletes participating in sports such as swimming, tennis, pitching, and weightlifting, or at work as a result of repetitive overhead activities. The injuries are caused due to over usage.
