Depends on the inju-: Ry you had. Is it been only 2-3 days ago or was it last week that you had injured it? Are you able to move the shoulder? Is there numbness in the hand or fingers or just around the shoulder? You need to provide more information before one can help you. Anterior shoulder pain probably is tendonitis. Use aleve (naproxen) and gentle exercises. If its getting worse see your pcp or an orthopedist about it.
