slipped on ice and fell on outstretched hand

...last week. When I raise my arm I hear a slight popping noise but there is no pain. When I shrug, I am aware of a tiny amount of pain. Mostly, my shoulder feels stretched out.

Should I be doing certain exercises right now, physical therapy of sorts?
I'm a 50 year old woman and have never had a shoulder issue before this
minor injury.

Re: slipped on ice and fell on outstretched hand

This happened to me as well - twice. In the beginning I thought I was okay after the falls, but many months later I started developing pain in my shoulder, and my hands. I eventually wound up, a year or so later, needing rotator cuff surgery for a tear, there was also loose cartledge floating around inside the area that had to be removed.

Hopefully, you don't have any major problems, but if it were me I would see someone to check it out. Things have a way, especially in the shoulder area, of sometimes getting worse.

Wish you all the best,
