Are my shoulder pains and numbness of limbs a result of my physically challenging job ?

i work with youth between 15yrs and 20yrs, with mental health concerns. I have to physically intervene when they become aggitated. Could this cause more damage, as I feel it statred last year when I was off work due to pain on my left side shoulder . And have since suffered weakness and numbness in my left arm and muscle pain in both from elbow to shoulder. I have and MRI in may and am worried I might damage myself if I have to physically contain the youth

thanks for choosing health care majic.I hope the mri was normal.If you do not have regular pain which restricts your daily activity of house hold you should not worry.Start doing some regular exercise to strengthen muscles after consulting your doctor this will make your muscles more powerful and gives flexibility and pain will not happen on slightest exertion.Take good diet rich in calcium.
