Inability : Inability to move your arm is a serious issue. The three main issues include a tendon tear, a shoulder dislocation or an injury to the axillary nerve. All of them require further orthopedic management. The strongest possibility of the three is a rotator cuff tear. Seek care as soon as possible.
