I had some pain in my right shoulder, tried to train around it and that seemed to work at first. But finally, things got worse instead of better so I went to see a doctor.
It hurt most when I moved my arm inside over my back. The doctor told me to get an echo and this revealed irritation on the tendon on my right supraspinatus and also swelling on the bursa.
Now I have to rest my shoulder for 4-6 weeks, so no chest or shoulder exercises and no overhead movements (pull ups and such).
Can I do something to speed up recovey?
My doc says icing won't do much, since the muscle is internal. He warned against massaging it, especially while the tendon is still irritated.
Is there anything I can do to recover a bit faster.
How do I start again after these six weeks? Just benchpresses with low weight and grudually increase the weight?
Any help would be appreciated.
