I pulled my right shoulder muscle during a golf swing. What can I do for it?
Most pulled muscles will heal with rest. Ice may help with the initial pain. In about two weeks, you should notice a significant improvement. If there is no improvement or your symptoms worsen, follow up with your doctor as it may be more than a simple strain.
