Traumatic : Traumatic shoulder injuries can be caused by a fracture. The only way to rule out a fracture is to get an x-ray. If you are unable to raise your arm you could also have a rotator cuff injury. If your shoulder is not getting better or if you continue to be unable to raise your arm, you should be seen by an orthopedic surgeon.
