Bad Shoulder

#1
Hi,

I've recently started running to get ready join up after i finish uni in June. I run 3 times a week, when possible, and have 3 different routes (different distances, gradients etc).

The problem is after i've been running for about 5mins my left shoulder aches and hurts while running. Its not a bad pain but enough to put me off while running. I've been training for 2 months and have the same problem every time in run. At the moment I just get on with it hoping it will stop but so far it hasn't.

I was wondering if anyone has had or have heard of a similar problem, and what can be done about it. As I don't want to stop training.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Geordie14

Possibly a rotator cuff problem. See your GP and ask whether a cortisone injection would be appropriate.

Thanks for your help milsum and whiskybreath.

Is that a serious problem? and do you know if that could stop me joining up?

Sorry about all the questions.

try and get your GP to refer you to the physio, they'll be the best people to treat and advise

My warm-up routine is about 5 mins long. Do all the usual streches etc.

Bear in mind, if you go to the doctor before you attend ADSC, and the doctor records on your Med forms that you have a shoulder injury/complaint, you are likely to be deffered until you are completely clear of it. Go and see a private physio/specialist and see what they can do for you. Good Luck.

Cheers Easy!

Hi G14,

It might be just a muscle spasm in your shoulder, does it feel tight round the neck and upper back area near the shoulder blade, with the muscle feeling hard/tight ?.
Then if it is , its something of nothing, but I would still see a physio, as its worth getting checked out, because we can't see your complaint so really arn't in a position to assist you.

Anyway good luck with your quest.

Thanks for all the advice given on here. The pain feels more like the joints than the muscle, so i think i'm going to see a physio, private, to make sure its nothing serious.

Thanks again for the advice.
