Torn Bicep or arm muscle?
An_244355 posted:
I fell in a parking lot 6 weeks ago and landed on my left arm. I had severe pain in my upper arm/shoulder area, went to the ER and they put me in an immobilizer. I do not have insurance now, so have been unable to follow-up with an orthopedic doctor. I broke my right shoulder 8 years ago and this hurts similar but I can tell it is not the bone. It pops when I try to use it too much. I still cannot lift my arm above my waist without a great deal of pain. I need to know what if any physical therapy exercises I can do now to facillitate healing. Thanks for any advice you can give.
