    What is wrong with my shoulder?

    I shoulder tackled a guy at rugby practice Tuesday night, and did something to my dominate shoulder. I can't lift my hand over my head still, and it has been 2 days. Any movement that causes my arm to move hurts my shoulder. I can't lift my coffee mug or a bottle of water to my mouth to drink. Putting on my shirt in the morning is a 5 minute ordeal. I have to grab my bad arm with my good arm to do simple shit like put my car key in the ignition. I can't even wipe my ass with that arm.

    It could be any number of things. I had the same symptoms when I hyper-extended my tendon (uppercut in a Muy Thai fight).

    There just isn't enough to go on. Do you have a GP that you can go to?

    Yeah, but I sure do hate going to the doctor. If my arm isn't at least 50% by Monday, I will see a GP then. I can't afford to take off from work right now, and Mondays are my day off.

    Sounds good. You'll need to take off from any weight training and Rugby you have until then.

    When you made the hit in Rugby, did you hit with your shoulder or your arm? You said it was a shoulder tackle, but did you actually use any part of your arm?

    I used very little arm. My shoulder hit him in is thigh or knee. The contact spot was right on my trap. There was a nice sized bruise. I just can't figure out why my arm is so weak now.

    It's probably not a tendon injury then.

    It could be alot of things. Best bet would be getting a referral from your GP and getting that shit MRI-ed. You could also see a PT so they can assess what movements you are having problems with and maybe they could diagnose your injury.

    Good luck.

    Other than that, take it easy.

    I agree with fufu. Your symptoms are exactly what mine were when I landed on my shoulder while playing softball. After a few days of misery, I went to my GP who referred me to an excellent PT. No surgery required and it took 3 months of PT visits and another 3 months of doing similar stretching exercises at home, but it eventually did heal.

    The PT had a model of the shoulder joint. It's one poorly designed joint. As it was explained to me, since there are so many degrees of freedom in the shoulder (think of all the ranges of movement you can do normally), the ligaments and connecting tissues are very "stretchy" (not the technical term, but it escapes me at the moment) and it doesn't take much to mess them up.

    Good luck, KelJu.

    Grrrr! I played football for 12 years. Don't tell me that I received a season ending injury in less than 3 weeks of rugby.

    go to the doctor.

    i wouldn't try and wait it out. if you can't move it and you are in pain when you try to move it, then you need to get that looked at ASAP. Not moving the shoulder leads to problems in and off itself and not being ABLE to move the shoulder means that something is very wrong. Don't waite.

    It was my rotator cuff. I'm out for the season, and probably won't be able to work upper body for a few months. It doesn't seem to be getting much better either.

    What's the plan for recovery? Is surgery an option?

    i've hurt my rotator.. infact i was going to mention that but it looks liek you know. go to a pt and get the exercises that you will need to do to heal.

    mine took a long time to heal, but it did without any surgery
