left shoulder problem
- 11-05-2012, 08:16 PM
I get this pain when ever i do a pressing motion. Its tolerable when doing flat exercises but as i incline it gets worse. To the point where im doing shoulder press on hammer strength with 25s comfortably. Its doesn't really hurt with shrugs or with lateral raises. Its hurts if i lift my arm up with it straight out or back with it straight out. I don't know what got into it. I was thinking it was from being to tight. My lats chest, triceps,biceps, and shoulders are all so tight i don't know if that's effecting it or what. Just want to know what you guys think, before i get it checked out

Yeah brother I get joint problems in my left shoulder as well. Subbed for info.

The tightness is definitely an issue. It sounds like infraspinatus of bicepts tendon (or both) impingement. You might want to try and get NYiron into this thread for more imput.
You also should probably explain in a little greater detail what is causing the pain, where you are feeling, etc. Some pictures of the positions might help.
And if all else fails, go see a sports doc or PT

This sounds an awful lot like my shoulder injury and one my friend had. Turned out to be labral issues. In fact I work at a gym and I've talked with have a dozen guys in the past 3 months who had some shoulder pain that was initially diagnosed as an overuse injury but turned out to be a problem w the labrumOriginally Posted by 209BIGDOG

Unless you have significant structural damage, this should get you healthy.

Back and down with the scap... Stretch the pecs obsessively... I'm rehabbing after surgery to repair a full-thickness tear of my right supraspinatus. Years of shortening the sh!t up front, and lengthening the sh!t out back finally did me in. Follow the recommended exercises to restore some acromial clearance. Back and down... Good posture always... And good luck!
