    It may be worth your while seeing a doctor and getting your shoulder xrayed.

    Hi Peter.

    Given this was an injury initially You could try some physiotherapy and if that doesn't work then go see your GP as you may need an xray or Ultrasound to determine the cause and appropriate treatment can then be commenced. 

    Cheers

      Hello Peter

      it is up to the Physio to decide what treatment you may need. They will take your history then examine you to determine what range of movement you have and where your pain is. They could do heat treatment, massage , Tens machine therapy , ultrasound it all depends on what they find.

      I wish you well.

      Kathy

      Take care
