Overview

If your broken bones still line up correctly, your injury can heal without surgery. Your doctor may recommend a simple sling to hold your shoulder in place, ice to reduce swelling and medication to manage your pain. Immediate physical therapy also can improve your mobility. If you need surgery, your doctor may use minimally invasive methods to reduce your pain and recovery time.
