How to treat persistent shoulder blade pain and soreness?Sport Medicine Orthopaedic Surgery Health & Fitness Pain
I’m a 30 years old male. My left shoulder blade has been feeling sore and painful for almost a year. It started when I strained my muscle from a prolonged period of work.
Thank you for your question - I imagine that your symptoms are troubling and causing concern.
Shoulder blade pain can be from a variety of causes, including changes in rotator cuff strength, positioning of the shoulder or a scapulothoracic bursa. If you are experiencing pain and a popping feeling around the shoulder then this might be the underlying problem.
I would suggest an initial assessment with a Sports/MSK physician - they might provide you with a Bessie ultrasound assessment too before recommending further treatment/
Hope this helps.
