1 Bump

is it normal or is it a sign of something

my daughter has injured her arm again and can't move it. i'm not sure what happened because i was in the bathroom but when i returned my daughter was crying and i asked her what happened and she told me her arm hurts and can't move it. this happened before when she was a year or a couple of months old. the first time it happened i massaged it and i moved it slowly for her and a couple of hours later she was fine but this time around she hasn't been able to bend the arms.
i think she and her brother were playing a little to rough or their daddy grabbed a little to hard when he was playing with her

  • This happened to my daughter and to my granddaughter. I took them to the Dr. and the ER and their arm was put back. It was dislocated.

    small child can have shoulder dislocation if "picked up" by the hands, like childs arms straight up toward ceiling, someone grabs childs hands and pull up off floor

  • Bend as in joint? Probably dislocated.

  • Growing pains?

  • If she cannot physically move it and it causes her pain then it is something more then just playing too rough.
    You really should talk to her OB about it.
