Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have shoulder pain possibly from playing squash. Please view my reports.

Answered by Dr. Rishu Sharma

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Shoulder pain can be a result of injury or disease of the shoulder joint. An injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. The injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci, and bones of the joint. I suggest you put an ice pack on the injured area for 20 minutes, four to eight times a day. Use a cold pack, ice bag, or a plastic bag filled with crushed ice wrapped in a towel. Put even pressure (compression) on the painful area to help reduce the swelling.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
