Hi guys. I'm here starting yet another post about a rotator cuff injury. I've read through a bunch of earlier posts on this topic, but all i see is contradiction after contradiction. I injured my right rotator cuff and it is painful moving my arm up and backwards at shoulder level. reaching up is also painful unless my elbow is facing forward. With palms facing in or towards me, i can do pullups with absolutely no pain. i can do cleans with absolutely no pain. The only things i can't do are presses. I can do a light bench press if i bring my elbows down close to the body instead of out wide, but it hurts when stabilizing sometimes so i'm laying off them. The pain got significantly better in the first week or two, but the recovery seems to have hit a plateau. I've been resting it and avoiding painful motions for about a month now.
My question is- should i continue to rest it completely and avoid it in the gym until there is absolutely no pain, or should i work through the pain by performing light rotator cuff exercises to strengthen it?
On previous posts, there seem to be advocates of both sides, so..... who really knows their shit??
Thanks in advance,
