A couple of weeks ago I think I overdid the swimming and the next day I was at work cradling my right shoulder with pain ..... but I did nowt about it and it cleared itself after a few days.

Why is it though that anytime anyone here has the most minor ailment they always have to see a doctor or a physio or some other 'specialist'?

Why can't people just 'man up' and use some common sense, instead of needing a fancy name for every little ailment they get along the way?

No not of all of us do, only the vocal ones. The rest of us already a have a phrase, HTFU.

DF3 - maybe you've just got so used to suffering arm and shoulder injuries from overdoing the "swimming" that you just laugh them off.

Hmm,Im not sure I like what your implying by putting swimming in quotes, especially as it was my right shoulder that was injured.

Haven't met my doctor, Only lived in the village for 10 years, and only seen a physio once in the last 20 years

Thats because, in the words of Seren Nos, you are a mans man! The sort of guy who would walk to school for 10 miles every day, uphill both ways, in blinding snow ...... even in summer.

And the "sweeping generalisation of the day" award goes to....

I think you'll actually find that when most people on here are injured they don't actually mention it at all because nine times out of then they know that rest will cure it.

but how can the rest cure it if they don't know about it?

Just realised the last time I saw a physio was 1992.

When I used to play football as a kid it was possible to run off just about any injury... Even a broken leg...

You had run it off when I was a kid as there were no substitutes.
 They used to stick you out on the wing if the injury was serious.

Only gay people play football.

 

...football even...

Football then.

When was that tournament in Norway? was there a tournament in Norway?

Anyway the thing I heard was the local Police were looking for practical jokers who thought it amusing (it was) to fill up a football with concrete and leave it lying around in the town center awaiting the attentions of football crazed drunks.

Have it!

Physios at £30 a time (come back in a few weeks) cost a fortune unless you can get an NHS referral. Just rest and ice it as it will fix itself in the same time as using a physio.

How long to ice and rest it?
