I am 61 years old and fell hard on ice . I slammed my shoulder when I went down. I went to the doctor and he said because I could raise my arms straight upward, to my sides and in back and could push against his hands that it was unlikely to be a rotator cuff tear, that it could be stretched tendons or muscles. I applied ice for 2 days and heat for the next few days and took ibuprofen but something doesn’t feel right. I went to the dr again and had an X-ray taken. There were no broken bones or bone spurs. The doctor said that he doesn’t think it’s a rotator cuff injury but if I did it might be a partial tear or a sprain. He prescribed Naproxen sodium twice a day every 12 hours yesterday for 10 days and if it’s still hurting I should go for physical therapy. My shoulder aches and although I can raise my hands to the sides my right arm, the one that was injured feels hard to keep up and I can’t do a large backward circle with that arm. It starts to hurt when I reach my arm up and backward so I can’t complete the circle. It feels like something is wrong with the rotation. Do you think it’s the rotator cuff?
