I've had pain in both shoulders for over 2 1/2 years now and a bad fall snowboarding last weekend really screwed up the right one. I've been doing lots of joint mobility/flexibility stuff and the diesel crew rehab program with good doses of TGU's and FMR with a tennis ball. That program got the pain down pretty low, but there was always a little bit of pain no matter what I did. A previous MRI showed mild osteoarthritis, so I figured the mild pain was from that. I haven't done anything since the snowboarding and both shoulders feel much better, but there is still always the low level chronic weakness/tenderness/soreness/inflammation. The pain originates deep within the AC joint and radiates down the scapula. There's more pain in the right one.

I'm fed up with the pain and refuse to live with it for the rest of my life. That being said I've decided I'm not doing anything using my upper body until May when I get out of school except for rehab work.

Any tips would be helpful.

Thanks guys.
