Default Shoulder Issue

I'm had soreness and dull pain in my right shoulder since the beginning of the summer.
The pain is most prominent when I raise my arm straight above my head our extend it fully outward.

Almost feels like a pulled muscle

I am left-handed. 36 yrs old. I dont remember stressing it.

Thanks alot!!

Hi---it sounds as though you may have a rotator cuff tendonitis----what we commonly refer to as impingement syndrome.

Visit this link for more information and an informative video at the bottom:

Typically, a 6 week trial of physical therapy will improve things. That's where I'd start!!
Let me know if you have any additional questions. Visit the PT section on www.rearmyourself.com and visit one of the PT providers listed!! In New York State you can self refer yourself and receive treatment for up to 4 weeks without having to see a physician first.
