1 doctor agrees

In brief: Scapular fracture

The shoulder blade is part of the scapula.
These often do not need treatment but an x-ray and sometimes a cat scan is needed to make the diagnosis and determine the proper treatment.

In brief: It depends

Shoulder blade (scapula) fractures are not very common.
Most such fractures heal without surgery. Surgical repair may be warranted for fractures that or significantly displaced.
