shoulder pain and injuries happen frequently. do you know, your shoulder is one of the most mobile joints of your body? look at how much it can move! it has a group a muscles called the rotator cuff to keep it in place. as with anything highly mobile there is more chance for "wear and tear" for the joint and surrounding soft tissues.
do fieldwork treat shoulder injuries and pain?

It is always a good ideas to get your neck and chest movement looked at to make sure there is nothing contributing to your shoulder discomfort as well an any neural sensitivity that may be present.

i have just had a shoulder injury at the comp. it "popped out." what should i do?
if a joint "popped out" or dislocated then "popped back in", this is called a subluxation. as there was no external force required to pop the shoulder back into place. the most important things to do next is assess the damage. does it feel ok? can you move it? is there blood flow to your hand?
if this all checks out then get an assessment with an experienced physiotherapist as the likely chance is there is some soft tissue damage that needs help to repair, your should needs some support. so things like tape often help to take pressure off stressed muscles. your physio will be able to guide you on an action plan to get you back into fitness and life again asap!
