Pain in the shoulder joints after straining. What can be done?

While running with my dogs, they pulled on the leashes very suddenly. After a couple nights of sleeping (I prefer to sleep on my side) my shoulder hurts inside the joint . I m also in the middle of college finals at the moment and can t really spare the time to see a doctor or chiropractor. What can I do for it at the moment? I have full fine motor mobility in my arm , but my shoulder hurts to move behind me or overhead.

Thanks for posting your query.

From description it seems you might suffering from muscular or ligament strain at shoulder.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination.

Meanwhile give rest to your shoulder, hot fomatation to the area. You can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce inflammation and pain and muscle relaxants to calm spasm under supervision of your treating doctor.

Wishing you good health
