How long before shoulder will recover?


Yesterday i was doing Jiu Jitsu (martial arts) and i landed directly on my shoulder.
It was the worst pain i have ever experienced. I had to go the hosiptail to get an x-ray but they said its not fractured, just tissue damage.

Now i can't move my arm up or down. The pain is inbetween my neck and shoulder.
How long will this pain last

I have a sever pain in my shoulder. What could it be?


I have been in moderate to severe pain for 4 1/2 years and I've been to doctors, physical therapy, orthopedic specialists, and I've had countless x-rays done, one MRI, and one MRI with a saline injection but the only thing that has shown up is inflamation. . They have rulled out a rotator cuff tear, fractures, and labrel tear. Can anyone tell me what else it could possibly be or what type of treatment may work so that I can discuss it with my doctor.
I have tried all kinds of over the counter meds like naproxen, asprin, ibuprofene, and aciphetomen (I know I spelled it wrong) I have also tried icy hot, biofreeze, and some prescription meds like vicoten, percocet, oxycoden, and valum and none of them worked. They did electotherapy and sonogram treatment too.I did try applying ice and massage therapy and those are the only things that sort of helped. The ice helped the most with the inflamation and the massage therapy helped with the range of motion and slightly with the pain but it's still very painful.

Well it sounds like you've covered a lot of options. My husband had shoulder pain and it turned out to be be repetitive wearing of the bone at the joint, signs of arthritis, they said he could have a certain amount of injections to improve it.

I would try, a sports injury specialist, and a really good masseur. Some kind of hydrotherapy where your weight is supported.

The question is why is it inflamed? and could you try an ice pack treatment and an anti inflammatory pain killer.

Also take codliver oils, drink plenty of water and eats raw nuts and seeds, for your joints and make sure you're getting enough (not too much) calcium.

Best of luck, this must be frustrating.  (+ info)

What can be done about a frozen shoulder?


My partner fractured her elbow 3 months ago. It was operated on and a plaster was put on for three weeks. When the plaster was taken off she had got a frozen shoulder. The physio does not want to see her for treatment to her elbow until the frozen shoulder is healed. Can anyone shed light on a cure. She has tried acupuncture but to no avail. Regards

Fractured rib under my right shoulder blade?


I fractured my rib playing football three weeks ago with my friends. It is the first (top) rib under my right shoulder blade. The doctor says it was kind of a freak accident, but also says that I can't play sports again for 4-6 weeks. Right now, a week before the "deadline" I feel great. I know I don't want to push it, but how long do i have to wait? I can't stand not playing sports!
----------

I would wait til next week at least before I get back to sports.  (+ info)

What could be causing my shoulder pain?


I have had shoulder pain for almost five years. Most of the time it is pretty moderate but sometimes if I move a certain way it becomes so painful I can't even move it. I have been to several doctors including a Primary physician, physical therapists, and orthopedic specialists. They have done x-rays, an MRI, and an MRI with a saline injection and they still can't figure it out. They have determined that it is not a rotator cuff tear, labrel tear, burstitis, arthritis, fracture or broken bone, or torn cartilidge. I have tried a number of different pain relievers such as asprin, naproxen, ibuprofen, icy hot, biofreeze, bengay, and acometaphen. I have also been prescribe percocet, vicatin, tylox, oxycodene, and valum and none of these have seemed to help at all. I am still going to the doctor but if I could get any suggestions to what it might be so I can discuss it with him I would really appreciate it.
The two things I have tried that helped a little were applying ice and massage therapy.
