In brief: Soft tissue

Fall onto upper extremity begot acute wrist pain & delayed shoulder pain suggests that shoulder disorder is sympathetic response to primary wrist injury & splinting.
Shoulder muscle spasm is likely, followed by tendonitis. In that there was not an instant shoulder injury nor pain, ligament injury is unlikely. Heat, rest , acupuncture, topical Cannabis lotion, & massage are considerations.
