In brief: Pain after injection

Sometimes, patients who receive an injection into their arm may experience some local discomfort, making moving the arm difficult.
There is nothing specific to what is injected (assuming a standard injection usinf a local anesthetic and cortisone) that will affect the use of the arm. Good luck!
