Unhappy Physio help for Shoulder pains 5 MONTHS LATER! HELP!

In March 2015 I went to the mountains for the very first time and took a nasty fall on the last day, it shook me up a fair bit, but cam e away feeling slightly achy.

Then for about 2 months I had a fair bit of shoulder pain. It went away for 3 months, but now it's back and worse than ever!

I don't want to go to a GP as they'll refer me to physio, I'd rather just do the physio at home, but can anyone recommend anything?

Is it an impingement? If you go to a good masseur they can ... um, dissolve muscle knots on the inside of the patella. They enter through the armpit and it hurts like fuck but it helped my sister who had a pretty severe impingement. She went twice and then it was gone.

The crux is not the GP but to get to a good physio therapist. (I've a 4y long story of many useless PTs util I recently finally found a very good one who was able to a) find the ral underlying problem and b) to treat it. Something all the many PTs before didn't manage... like with any other profession, there are few A grades, many intermediates and many foul eggs)

I had this after a fall in January. My wife, who is a physio but not a sports injury specialist treated my shoulder a couple of times but spotted that there was something else going on and forced me to go and see a specialist. Turns out I had an impingement in my neck and no injury to my shoulder at all. I saw him about 6 times, he gave me some exercises, would manipulate the area and he checked my progress each time. It eventually cleared up but it was money well spent.

Moral of the story: I'm married to a physio but it still took a specialist to sort me out. This is not something you can cut corners on.

Don't be a dumbass, go see a doctor. Pain is your body tellin' you something's wrong. Wife caught an edge, slammed hard. Sore for a month, and she thought it was getting better. Months pass, middle of the night she is pushing herself up out of bed to use the bathroom. SNAP.......excruciating pain, crying and vomiting. Months earlier she had fractured her rotator cuff. Getting out of bed, she broke the fracture completely off. Go see a doctor.......

I think it would be better to go see a doctor cooperatively. ^^
