Arm damaged in car accident

Patient : I was in a car accident 2 weeks ago,and all conclusion is that when the car rolled,it fell on my arm,but heres the thing,my arm didnt break,but it did get hurt pretty badly.Anyway,most of the bruises are starting to go away,but theres some sensitive, hardened and swollen tissue under the skin on my wrist and inner arm.The doctors at the hospital said I should start using my arm a.s.a.p. so I can avoid physio therapy.Its still quite sore,I struggle when having pressure on my hand, for example helping myself up.And I get a burning sensation when stretching my arm(near where the hardened,sensitive and swollen tissue is.and my elbow pains terribly when I put pressure on it.Should I be concerned?
