    Ive bursitis in my shoulder,been seeing an orthopedic surgeon and he suggested 400mg ibuprofen 3 x a day with food for 2 weeks even if there was no pain,said just to get asda's own make no need to buy the branded stuff,also to avoid any exercise that aggravated the problem.

    Thats made a massive improvement and i'm now back training chest and delts pain free now.

    Also getting physio from work to increase shoulder ROM.

    OK - cool.  Will give that a go.  Also having 10 days off in Greece so hopefully my elbows will have chance to recover and winny from my cut will be gone so less stress stress on the old joints...

    Depends what caused it. But generally, rest, lots of ice and some anti inflammatory gel.

    mates got this to the point where its painfull to even rub on the inside of clothes, years of heavy lifting done it

    hes had laser treatment or something and going alot lighter on the weights, and yes always use elbow wraps to keep them warm mate

    If its the lifting, best to cut it back if you can. Ice and ibupofen gel will do the trick to a certain point. 13 day holiday should sort it out.

    The problem is though, if you try working through it, it can / is likely to get to a point where you need steriod injections, then you cant use it for a month.
