Suggest treatment for shoulder pain with history of rotator cuff injuries

Hi...after working out with weights (simple rotator cuff and curls) I get pain from my shoulder down to about five inches into the side of my upper arms. The pain is intense. It lasts for about an hour then it goes away completely.
I have had rotator cuff injuries (years ago) that have mostly healed. My range of motion in each arm is about 85%. I do Moi thai and am fairly active 54 year old male. I have some arthritis in both knees and have experienced stress fractures on the outside of my feet. I am 6'4 nad 235 lbs. Irish/english/scot descent.

I want to be more active but the pain in shoulders and feet holding me back.

Hello,

You are at very good active status at this age. It looks from your details that you may be suffering from tendinitis at your shoulder muscles. With some specific exercises which can be learned from your physiotherapist you may also get benefited by having LASER, TENS and infrared therapy. You may apply an analgesic ointment locally and warm fomentation with water bag for three times a day. A collagen supplement can also be helpful in long term.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mukesh Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon
