    If you can tuck the wing in a fairly natural position and then gentle wrap a scarf around her body, that will keep her from hurting herself more. Just relaxing the muscle might allow it to pop into place, but it is hard to tell.

    It sounds like a vet visit is in order once the bird is calm and safely restrained.
