    i didnt do any exercises that will affect my acromion for a week..and the result was to feel more pain..
    so i decided to do a little bit of an exercises for my shoulders carefully and that worked..i feel already that the pain is not tha strong.
    i believe it will cure soon.
    its not the rotator cuffs neither biceps tentonitis , but in the beggining i think that it was something of these two..then i realise that was the acromion..now i press the acromion and i have pain there that my trapezius connect..
    sorry i can explain it more detail..!
    Well the biceps brachii originates on the supraglenoid fossa right under the acromion, is why i mentioned that. Could still be supraspinatus impingement or perhaps trapezius tendonitis as you alluded to. Let us know if you have anymore questions

    It is when you stand in front of a mirror and strike a pose like you are running, I mean you flex your muscles and put a strained look on your face and everything! It is actually pretty cool, I like to do it when I am standing in the back of a flat-bed truck moving at around 60mph so if you take a picture everything behind you is really blurry so it makes you look like you are running really fast!

    Good to know that you guys have a sense of Humor, Australia is my number 1 travel destination, I have not been out of the USA but a handful of times, mostly like Mexico & the Carribean, but in the future, I must experience Australia, definitely high on the bucket-list for sure!

    I am good, "Law Abiding Citizen" was pretty good, The best movie I've seen lately was the new "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" I liked how well it flowed and how realistic they made it seem, as in the possibility of it all. My favorite movie of all times is probably "Man on Fire" but I like all types, of course I am a superhero buff, so I like almost all of the Marvel and DC movies that have come out lately!

    Wish I could say that my trip plans to Australia would be in the near future, but I currently have 2yrs left in Nursing School and my financial situation at this time would not allow such a trip I will get there, I promise, there is just so much I want to see, I'm a huge animal & Wild Life advocate and the wildlife and scenery in Australia seems to top all other places by a long shot (in my opinion)! I gotta dive the Great Barrier Reef, I have to see a Salt Water Croc up and personal, definitely gotta catch me a few snakes, you name it I got a list Brotha!

    I would rather tangle with a Dingo than a Kangaroo, seriously! Not gonna out-run either one of them, but one on one, I just think I have a better chance of surviving the Dingo, now that is straight up tangle with, like fight for my life, but as far as which I would rather be in proximity with, I'd rather be near a Kangaroo, would probably not mess with me if I didn't mess with it, I could be wrong, you would probably know better than me?

    Me too if there was only one Dingo. Teeth and knails is all there is to worry but there not arms legs and tail. Maybe I should stick to the Koala they may have long nails but a good punt in combat boots should do the trick...

  21. Through research online and reading similar threads on weightlifting forums I have come to the conclusion that I have a bulging or compressed disc in my neck. Over the past month I have re-aggravated it a few times. Once with DB shrugs, once with seated Arnold presses, and once while washing my hair in the shower (lol). When it happened in the shower it cracked twice and hurt like hell of days afterwards. I've been doing neck retraction/extension (can't remember exactly what they're called) from the Mackenzie method book and it helps. It involves stretching my head/neck backwards (to where my chin would be at the top of my chest for example) 8-10 times, then for another 8-10 times repeating the movement but at the end, while neck is still retracted, looking up at the ceiling and moving my nose back and forth a few times very slowly. Doing that every 2 hours, every day.

    After staying out of the gym and doing those exercises the pain goes away, then I manage to aggravate it again after a few workouts. This is killing me. I need the gym.

    I am about to the point where the pain is gone, except for if my posture slips up and I'm seated in a slumped fashion. I think it just built up over time. I never knew sleeping on your stomach was bad, and that's the way I've slept my entire life. I'm 24 years old. I have since quit doing that and sleep on my side with an orthopedic pillow my dad gave me which he used after his surgery for degenerative disc disease. It seems to be better than using regular pillows. But I have a feeling that if I get back in the gym I will re-aggravate it.

    I have learned more that overhead presses and shrugs are very bad for people with this type of reoccuring injury. Bodyweight exercises like squats and regular/incline pushups don't seem to bother me, nor do very light curls. That's all I can really do outside of the gym with no equipment.

    When I go back to the gym, what exercises should I avoid? Should I not do back squats because the barbell being on the top of my back would possibly reaggravate it? What can I do to workout shoulders without being able to do overhead press movements? Are shrugs for traps out of the question? Since deadlifts work traps is that a bad idea too?

    Hope you're still checking this thread...I need help. The pain is mainly at the base of my neck in the center. No pain down my arms. After aggravating it the pain will be spread across both of my shoulders, sometimes one side more than the other. After doing the Mackenzie exercises the pain centralizes to the middle of my neck, at the base. I just sneezed. Sneezing also aggravates it apparently. Any advice?

    I'm doing fish oil, glucosamine/chondrointon/msm, and super cissus rx hoping maybe that will help it. Ibuprofen sometimes. Tramadol right after it happens because the pain can be rather severe until it begins subsiding via the exercises I mentioned.

    I also can't afford to see a professional nor do I have proper insurance..hence all the self-diagnosing, which I feel is rather accurate. Also worth mentioning, it's always the worst right when I wake up. My whole neck/top of my back/shoulder region feels really stiff and crunchy/crackly (if that makes sense).

    First and foremost, whether you can afford it or not I feel obligated to tell you that seeking the help of a professional, I know that I am, but one that can actually put his/her hands on you and diagnose you in person is my # 1 suggestion. Yes, I saw that you cannot afford it and I am going to make a suggestion, but it is possible that if you have a fractured vertebrae, or some other congenital defect I or any other professional could only see or know about is from X-rays, then it could possibly make matters worse. Do you understand what I am saying, I am clearly stating that my suggestion is at your own risk because I am not there to personally diagnose you and determine this exercise is 100% safe...

    Seated Cervical Traction using a device such as this...

    That is about the only thing you are not doing (minus not seeking professional Chiropractic or Physical Therapy Care) that could for the most part safely and effectively treat your neck injury! I believe they can be purchased at a great many different places, follow the instructions and slowly increase the weight and duration over time or it can exacerbate the situation!

    Hope all this helps you Bro!

  24. I completely understand what you are saying. I will look into the device. Though considering the fact that the pain seems to go away then come back...would you think this is something I can just wait out? Without getting x-rays/mri's etc? But then again saying that...waiting it out also hasn't been 100% successful.

    And thanks!

    Typically even with Chiropractic &/or Physical Therapy type care, you always correct the injury (structure affects function) then you strengthen the soft-tissue (muscle) around the afflicted area, making it more resilient to further pain and injuries!

  26. I see. Man now I'm kinda worried that it's fractured...but I feel like if that were the case I'd be in much worse pain. Then again, not like I am an expert or anything so how could I really know without getting the tests.

    Thank you so much for your advice. It's really cool of you to do this for us.

    I think I'm gonna try to hit back tonight, lightly and without shrugs, and see how it goes..

    Totally not trying to scare you, but it is possible to fracture like a spinous process, bony protuberance that you can feel as in the ridges down the center of your back and not really know it other than chronic low back pain and inflammation, fractures take a while to heal and it isn't like they would put you in a body cast, they would just not want you doing anything physically exerting or lifting heavy weights, so it is possible, but highly unlikely, as in I agree, I believe you would be in more pain, at least when it flares up/becomes swollen and inflamed anyway, but possible, I just had to let you know that!

    As far as what I am doing here and for the forum, Nahhh... stop, your making me blush, LoL! My pleasure friend, I believe in giving back, paying it forward, no matter how you wanna put, I enjoy helping my fellow man with what I know best, now kneel suckers ! As you can see I love to joke around and have a good time, but when it comes to giving advice I am always 100% serious!

    Hey... one more thing while I was thinking about it, not sure how much difference this will make, but how are you lifting? If you are lifting heavier with a low rep-range, you might, for at least a few weeks, lower the weight and start doing killer fast (30 second to 1min break between sets) sets of 20-25 reps, yes keep it challenging and burning like a MO-FO and pumped to the gills, but always get at least 20reps or you lower the weights, seriously try that for a few weeks, I think it will help and yes, avoid shrugs for a few weeks!

  29. Haha..just wanted you to know that it's appreciated man.

    Yeah...I've been lifting heavier in low-rep ranges, trying to increase strength and eating above maintenance. Could be that my strength exceeded what my body was able to handle.

    I will lower the weight and increase reps like you said. No shrugs. Are deadlifts ok? Or is that more of a if it bothers me stop, or if it doesn't bother me proceed?
