About this course

The Humerus is the long bone in your upper arm that connects your shoulder joint to your elbow joint. A break in the Humerus bone occurs in one of three general locations: closer to the shoulder joint (proximal point), closer to the elbow joint (distal point), or somewhere in the middle (diaphyseal point). Before you splint, or immobilize, the broken Humerus bone it’s important to identify the location of the break. Splinting the area correctly can help prevent further damage and reduce pain while you wait for trained medical help.
