Cold Weather & Shoulder Pain

Hi all,

I just recovered from bout of shoulder tendinitis a couple of weeks ago, and starting this week the pain has returned. Before it would only hurt if I put my arm in certain positions, but now it seems to be a constant dull ache.

While I was going through PT, the therapist told me that I may also have arthritis, due to the grinding noises that result from moving my shoulder.

My question to the group is, would the significant change in temperature here in New York cause a flare up? The reason I ask, is that i have heard that people who suffer from arthritis normally get pain when it is cold.

There also the distinct possibility that I just went a bit overboard with my my training, but it seemed to come on so quickly. I did some Z Health work on Saturday, then ran the 5K; rested on Sunday, doing nothing but a couple of Z Health drills; then on Monday, seemingly out of nowhere, pain.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Chris

Re: Cold Weather & Shoulder Pain

Yep, my joints ache when it gets cold. Fairly normal, heh...

Make sure you do extra warm up stuff to make sure the joint is working well before you work out.

If it hurts too much just stay away from that. You don't want to make it worse.

I don't think it's the same thing, but my right shoulder often starts hurting a little during metcons, regardless of whether the shoulder joint is even being used. It's worse in cold weather.

Re: Cold Weather & Shoulder Pain

Hi Christopher,

I've had similar problems with my shoulders. I just submitted a lengthy post about my new discovery that has helped me in my struggle to heal my shoulder problems, and that is "The Frozen Shoulder Workbook" by Clair Davies. Basically, a Trigger Point Therapy self-treatment guide.

Anyway, it mentions that trigger points are often mis-diagnosed, sometimes as arthritis, but the list had a number of other mis-diagnoses. I saw that in the post and thought it might be helpful.

In any case, GREAT BOOK! I can't say it enough.

Good luck with your shoulder
