Symptom #3: Grinding Sensation

Our joints usually move quite smoothly. Joints contain fluids that help to keep everything well lubricated and the soft cartilage helps to act as a cushion. This means that everything usually moves quite smoothly with little friction involved. However, this can all change if a bone is broken.

If a bone breaks, then you may be left with two jagged edges at the point of the break. These are not lubricated and will have no cushioning barrier between them, so there is a good chance that they will come into contact with each other. This can lead to an unpleasant grinding sensation when the patient tries to move their arm.
