Hi there,

I'm sure there are a number of things you could do.

Are you currently doing any physio on it ? A specialised shoulder physio would be able to give you some strengthening exercises.

As a first point of call I'd go and see a sports physician that specialises in shoulder injuries. Whereabouts are you based ? I have shoulder instability and both my sports physicians have been able to come up with ideas that my physio hadn't thought of.

Good luck and let us know how you're progressing.:D

Thanks for that. I went to the physio the other day as it got to the stage where I was icing before and after swimming. I am on anti flams at the mo. I have an mri scan tomorrow, but he doesn't think anything will show. I went back to swimming yesterday and it seemed to fine. So it will be interesting to see how it goes.
