/ Shoulder pain when running?
Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on why im getting shoulder pains in my left arm when running?
I get no problems when swimming, or any other shoulder exercises at the gym, but really bad pain when running?
My right shoulder was dislocated when i was younger, but that causes no problems!
Really confuses me, unless im doing something wierd with my left arm when running like waving it around like a madman?? haha please help!
Where exactly does it hurt?
Could it just be a stitch, I sometimes get pain in my right shoulder, always right, which is just a stitch.
Is it almost a nerve strain? I get a similar feeling in my right shoulder when I'm holding it out from my body a lot. Also behind my left shoulder blade and up my neck! The only advice I can give is to stretch lots! Seemed to fix a lot of my complaints :)
I used to get this, just stretching it out a bit and wearing a windproof worked for me.
I get this too, often comes on after 5-15 minutes but tends to go away again after another 10 mins-ish. If I force my shoulders to relax it eases it a bit, together with dropping my hands so I'm not too crunched up. I wonder if it's cold related as I tend to run in a t-shirt in everything down to full on snow...
Might be poor posture when running.
That's not a bad description of shoulder pain I sometimes get. I find if I work the shoulder before I run it stops it. Loosening it up and statically stretching. As you say, it doesn't really seem to stop it if you "work" it after it's started hurting.
> Might be poor posture when running.
Was gona say that. I used to get sore neck from bad posture running until I fixed it. Head up, chest out, shoulders back I was taught.
I get it from time to time - waggle it and it seems to go. No disceranble reason, but uncomfortable to painful whenit happens.
It has to be said that it is a) the least of my troubles when it comes to running and b) not necessarily the most painful part.
Thinking about it, running with a 5kg rucksac (OMM training) might have helped because it hasn't done it since I started that.
