|Typical golf swing: |
Notice the wide range of motion of the left shoulder
If you shoulder is bothering you, what can you do? My advice to most patients is first to take a week or two off. If that doesn't work, then try to shorten your swing. Try a shorter swing first at the driving range with your irons. If that goes well and you can swing without pain, then move on to playing nine holes with only your irons. If at any point pain returns, stop, take a week off, then try again. If things don't improve, see a shoulder doc.
