How to identify and treat injury resulting from over use
What rehab should I do for tendonitis in my throwing shoulder?
Go to a sports trainer, he will tell you exactly what to do. I had some problems with my shoulder too, not sure what it was, but he showed me some exercises and they worked great.
You should be doing lots of high-rep, low-weight workouts like pendulum exercises and some rotator cuff-specific workouts again involving light weights.
This is just me speaking from experience, but you should speak with a physician who will hopefully direct you to a physical therapist. My advice is just from my own injuries, but you should listen to the pros.
Elevate and immobilize the affected extremity. Use slings and splints to keep the injured area of shoulders and arms from moving. For other parts of the body, use compression with Ace bandages to reduce swelling.
Ice the affected area 20 minutes at a time every several hours for at least the first 24-48 hours. Wrap ice in a towel to protect your skin.
Change to heat treatments for the next several days.
Elevation of affected extremity
Use of over-the-counter non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as Advil or Aleve)
Take a few days off. When you start back, make sure you spend plenty of time stretching. If it returns, see a doctor.
ICE and no throwing
