Ive been experiencing different minor shoulder issues for the past 6-12 months. They seem to come and go, and I just cant put my finger on it.
*Its usually minor numbness or an aching in my shoulder or traps.
*Doesn’t seem to be directly related to any exercises, at least from what ive seen. (I stay away from barbell pressing movements, and favor db’s instead)
*Sometimes it will be in my right shoulder, and then the very next day, my right side is fine, and my left is not.
*Once in a while, i’ll get a stiff sore back, that goes all the way from my lower back, up into the back of my head.
*Usually if i concsiously focus on relaxation the pain/discomfort will go away temporarily.
*I noticed that if i get hungy it gets worse, and after eating it usually subsides for a while.
*Rolling a tennis ball on the medial border of my scapula, and right below my shoulder joint feels like there are some knots, and usually feels good for a while afterwards.
*Unlike many others, I dont do much pressing movements and this developed when I was doing a lot of deadlifting, and db snatches, and pullups. Im pretty sure my external rotation strength and ROM are not the problem.
Ive read a lot of articles on here about shoulders, and have tried to figure out whats causing this. I dont think its serious enough to go to a doctor, but does need some focus at correcting. Anyone have any ideas?
