Re: Shoulder Injuries

I, too, suffer from chronic shoulder problems mostly from chronic subluxation (trick shoulders) as a youngster. I believe you've had many good suggestions and I'd like to synthesize and add.

!.) Decrease frequency and/or intensity of training. This is a staple of treating sports injuries. 2.) A few weeks of anti-inflammatories will speed healing. 3.) As you describe your problem as starting with stiffness or tension I'd suggest seeing a chiropractor to evaluate spinal alignment. Chronic malalignment causes increasing tension and pain as you've described. MAssage before or after chiropractic treatment works and feels fantastic.

Good Luck.
