Upper Limb Fractures

 Upper limb fractures are common and it is important to know the different variations. As a physiotherapist you will most probably be seeing these pitchside (following trauma) or after they have been removed from their cast and need to get it moving and stronger.

On pitchside you need to establish whether the player can play on. Any deformation, immediate swelling/bruising may indicate fracture and these players need to be removed from play, the fracture stabilised (to avoid further displacement) where possible and then advised to attend hospital.
