Injury - Childs Upper Arm

An_253151 posted:
My 6 yr old ran into a glass-florette styled door knob very hard, and has an injured upper arm. The door knob is made of a crystal in an irregular shape of a florette, so the impact was probably not different than running your upper arm into a fixed door knob sized jagged rock.

Curious if anyone has expertise in this area. We gave ibuprofen and iced it. Fingers and wrist movement is possible without major pain. So far no bruising although its only been about 20 mins. The child's upper arm muscle felt a little lumpy to me after the impact.

I suspect it is not broken but concerned about muscle injury.

Thanks.
