Customer Question

I fell and put my arm down to catch myself. Now I can barely move my arm. It feels like the muscles around my elbow are really sore and I can't lift my arm. What might be wrong?

Fracture of the forearm.

This happens with this type of injury.

Damage to the elbow or shoulder can happen as well.

You need to go to the ER for exam and x ray.
