Fell on elbow, bicep numb, pinched nerve in cervical area, had cervical fusion surgery done. Treatment?

I had a fall over a year ago, and fell onto my elbow from a height of 1metre. At the time i could not move my right harm or hand for about three months. It felt like by bicep was numb and that my arm was a dead weight. I still have trouble with my neck, when i lift my arms up to wash my hair, i have a nerve pinching in the cervical area. Also when i touch near this vertabrae the nerve pinchesmand sends a sharp needle like feeling across my right shoulder . Is this serious or will further time heal? I am not sure if this is relative but i also had a cervical fusion at c5 and 6 around 20years ago

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Generally neuropraxia that means stretching of nerves heals or starts to heal 3 months following trauma.
You should try some electric modalities
like faradich stimulation.
If this does not help you can consult BRachial plexus surgeon for brachial plexus repair or plastic surgeon for tendon transfer.
Get well soon.
Thank you.
