Does anyone else have shoulder pain
« on: August 16, 2011, 05:12:47 PM »
Have been biking, walking and some swimming.  Just can't do any upper body work with this damn shoulder.  I injured it doing simple pushups 3 months ago.  seems to do better, then I seem to re-injure it when I work out again...any advise?

Yes, go to a physio and get an ultrasound. I injured mine mountain biking, was told by doctor and hospital that there was nothing wrong with it. Went for an ultrasound, found the problem, and all fixed now.

thanks for the advise. I'll set up a doctors appointment.  No insurance so I try to minimize appointments.  Hopefully it's not something too serious.

Honestly, your doctor will be useless. You need to see a sports physio.

I ended up with 3 screws in my shoulder to stabilise everything, and all is 100% now.

Unfortunately, if your shoulder is injured you must stop with physical activities and rest painful area. This type of injuries takes up to couple of months (if you don't take it serious for a lifetime) to be cured. Visit your GP, do additional checkups and rest. Good luck!
