I have been improving on dips over the past few weeks. I got up to 30lb + bodyweight but in hindsight, my form was atrocious. Like I said, I am an idiot, and I had noticed a left clavicle pain for awhile when doing dips, but ignored it because it quickly faded after dips and didn’t make any of my other lifts suffer. Last time I dipped the pain was intense but subsided as always.
But a few days later, I can’t even bench without bringing on the pain. I can, oddly, overhead press but I have not tried heavy weights and will not until I am diagnosed. My shoulder now pops when I rotate it, but doesn’t hurt unless I do pushups or any kind of forward pressing movement.
I’m going to the Dr’s and I am fearing that he will tell me I have a serious AC joint seperation. I’ve dropped all upper body movements, and am doing light external rotations and rotator cuff and scap work as well as shoulder dislocates to help rehab. this is the end of my training stupidity, as I’ve been lucky with injuries lately in that they have all been mostly easily fixed, but I have a feeling that this one is different.
my clavicle area pops when I rotate my shoulders and I have a dull pain after leaning on the injured arm, although I can laterally lift my arm and do a chest fly without pain. I can deadlift, pullup, and squat w/o pain. anyone else had this type of injury and what was your recovery time? I am hoping mine is just inflamed… I’m such an idiot.
