Right Upper Arm Pain

Postby abmacca » Wed Apr 13, 2011 6:18 pm

Every time I go riding I get pain at the back of my right upper arm. it starts at the top and spreads down to above the elbow. I have been riding for a few years and this is only a recent thing. It is getting so painful that I can usually on ride for about 25km before I need a break to stretch and loosen my arm before being able to ride again. The pain goes away completely 2-3 minutes after I stop riding. Does anyone know what this might be and how I can stop it happening?

not enough info.
could be referred neck pain, could be triceps related, probably not shoulder though

why's it happening now ?
changed bike setup in anyway?

+1 to that. Probably from shoulder from neck/spine. A good sports chiropractor would fix it in a couple of weeks. Steer clear of the new-age hippie types.

Until then, stretch before riding.

sounds like possible impingement - but close to impossible to tell.

try being very conscious of your posture, make sure your shoulder blades are well back & squeezed together & pushed down - see if that alleviates it at all.
