I’ve had nagging discomfort in my left AC joint for some time. I believe using too wise a grip on bench pressing when I started back lifting about 17 months ago may have been the primary cause. Perhaps overhead pressing too. Gave up pressing a couple months ago. It was less noticeable but still there still. Was at my primary care physician this morning and had an X-ray done. She stated there is a small separation there. Referred me to an orthopedic so I expect to be seen within a couple of weeks or so. Should know in the next couple of days. I have been doing some isolation exercises for pecs, shoulders, and triceps since I stopped pressing. Added back some push ups on stairs a few weeks ago. This week I tried some landmine presses and have bought materials to build a decline bench.
If there is a small separation in there, are there any increased risks in landmine presses, decline presses, or doing push ups on stairs at a fairly steep angle? I know those are supposed to put a little less stress on the shoulder than flat bench pressing. Thanks for any feedback.
