Nerve injury: Your symptoms suggest a nerve compression or bruise resulting from the shoulder trauma. An MRI could clarify the exact current status. This could be arranged by an orthopedic surgeon or by one's family physician. Ultimately, a decision can be made as to whether physical therapy or surgery will be indicated.
