Sholder Pain

Hi,My name is Julio and I play hard ball baseball. About 6 months ago, while playing catcher, I made a hard unbalanced throw to second base and felt I threw my entire arm with the ball as well. For about a minute or two I couldn’t lift my arm an inch. After a few days the pain went away, but now, everytime I play ball and after any agressive throw the pain comes back and I have minimal control of my throwing arm.
I try to lift my arm to the side and I can go to about 1 o’clock before I start feeling pain.
I can slowly lower my arm as well. But, when I try to lift my arm straight ahead, the pain stops me immediatly at 3 o’clock and I can’t lower my arm slowly.
It just falls with intense pain.What do you think the problem is and what do you recommend?

I would ice contiuually and see a chiropractor for laser or electric shock treatment. The injury should take about 4 to 6 weeks to cure

  2. It sounds like you have an impingement in your shoulder. But, could also be a torn rotator cuff. Go see a doctor for sure and see if he will write a script for PT or an ATC for rehab. Good luck.
