Thank-you for bringing this topic up. Unfortunately, physiotherapists rarely get to treat your pain days after the injury. Most come to physiotherapy after the wait and see game or “I’ll just doing what hurts” or “it will go away sometime”. So, why in most cases does the pain and loss in function not just go away after resting for a week or ten. The simple answer is the wear and tear we put our bodies through occurs over months to years and this wearing does not just go away with out finding out what is causing this pain and correcting it. You may get short term relief with rest but once you return to your normal routine the pain most times come back.
The pain is your brain telling you enough in enough, STOP, do something to make me better. The best course of action is to see a physiotherapist right away so they can help your body recover from the years of wear and tear. A physiotherapist will be able to determine what the root of the shoulder problem is and help you fix the reason for your pain. One more thing you need to know is the longer you are in pain the more your body will compensate to avoid this pain which in turn throws other areas out of align which can cause multiple pain sights.
