Ok so heres the deal, ive seen a physio about 3 times. I first visited the phys for
advice on some shoulder pain i had been experiancing. They examined me and found i
had a slight winging of the left scap.
I did some research of my own, read articles on this site and many others, and each
time i went back i asked stuff like ‘have i damaged my Thoratic nerve’ the
phys prodded about and done some stuff and came to the conclusion that i hadnt.
I should mention i have seen 3 different physio’s in 2 different gyms to get a broader
analysis (and to find out what reccomendations they give).
The first reccomended retraining the scap with small movements, some using a ball on a
surface and other stuff putting hand on wall and setting the scap then moving slightly.
The second reccomended a internal/external rotations in different postions with resistance
The third reccomended strengthening the serratus anterior, exercises such as scap push ups
and movements like in a bench press position with light Db’s protract and retract the
scap and also with a raised platform walk with your hands up and down.
So 3 different reccomendations, I just wanna get any feedback on here, with if possible people who have had a problem with a winging scap and how they went about curing problem. Currently I am doing the third reccomendation 3 times a week and feel it has helped a litte, the physio gave me no advice on whether to stop heavy lifting so i am still going heavy on bench
From the research i have done it seems the only full remedy is surgeory but as thats
probably not an option i wanna do something to help sort it out
