is common in cricket due to the repeated action of throwing the ball. In most cases shoulder pain is caused by rotator cuff tendonitis
, which occurs when the tendons surrounding the rotator cuff become swollen. This injury is usually due to overuse. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles which serves to protect the shoulder joint.
Treatment will usually involve resting the affected shoulder and taking medication to reduce swelling
and minimise pain. In cases where symptoms are persistent, surgery
may be carried out to prevent injury in the future. The shoulder should be rested until it has started to heal; gentle exercises and physiotherapy
will help to gradually build strength around the joint and increase flexibility and movement.
It is important to allow sufficient rest periods between demanding sessions of physical activity. Exercises and stretches will help to increase flexibility and strength; this will help to prevent injuries in the future.
Please consult orthopedic doctor or physiotherapist
in person for detail assessment and management of your shoulder pain.
