Hello. In general, depending on location, all humerus fractures are divided into three groups. Those are proximal humerus fractures, mid-shaft humerus fractures and distal humerus fractures. Proximal fractures occur near shoulder joint. They can affect tendons that are important for shoulder movements. Mid-shaft fractures occur away from both shoulder and elbow joints. Most of them will heal without a surgery. These fractures are usually joined with damage of radial nerve. Distal injuries occur near the elbow. They are not so common for adults.
