Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Signs and symptoms of a fracture
are: intense pain and tenderness, swelling, deformity
of the bone involved, limitation of movement
Normally for soft tissue
injuries with no bony involvement , the following is suggested: R.I.C.E where r : rest , he needs to rest the arm , (2) I: ice , you mentioned that you are already doing this (3) C:in the presence of swelling, a compression bandage can be helpful to reduce the swelling and pain (4) elevation of the limb is also useful
Anti- inflammatory pain medication can also be used , on a full stomach.
As we age, bone density
increases and the risk of a fracture increases, so if you continue supportive therapy and there is no improvement in his pain in a 24 hr period , it would be best to take him to be assessed.
I hope this helps
