most times during my training (mostly after boxing) i would get a dull pain in my left shoulder, then a shooting pain. should i go to the doctor for this or just let it work its self out.

hello there,

i have a similar prob but my coach told me it could probably from my left hook punch w/c takes awhile to heal.. a natural thing for most boxers... hurts at the top of my left shoulder. he told me to keep practicing and always do stretching.. told me to do left shoulder circling exercise slowly... dont know about your case, is it the same?

This is happening to me also. My cousin is a coach and said he maybe able to see if my technique is wrong. It happens to me while using the jab.

Exactly where on your shoulder does it hurt? Front, top, back? Does it radiate down the side of the arm, or up into your neck?

Does it hurt more when you move your shoulder in a particular direction?

There was an old thread on a similar injury, here's the url:

http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/?go=forum.VersionCheck&thread=1374781&forum=1

Thread's title is "Sore neck/upper back"

Let me know if you want me to bump it.

It sounds like fascial restrictions are involved. Here's another url for you to check out. In particular, scroll down to page 180 and check out "Superficial Back Arm Line(fig. 8.17d):

I recommend Intu-Flow practice and seeing a good massage therapist a few times. You can find Intu-Flow at www.CSTMinnesota.com - by far the best joint mobility and muscle-loosening program I've seen to date. (and I've seen many)

If you can, get a sport massage or soft tissue work done on your Rotator Cuff, Deltoid and Neck. If necessary you could do some rehab as well. Intu-Flow is also a great idea.
