Six weeks ago…
I strained my left pec/deltoid and injured my left coracobrachialis on the last rep of the last set of 5x5 on the barbell flat bench press.
I went to my general practitioner and was told it was a deltoid tear(I knew this wasn’t the case) and would heal by itself in 6 weeks.
I also went to my chiropractor who accurately identified that there was no pectoral rupture and worked primarily on my coracobrachialis because I was very week in transverse flexion and had discomfort in transverse adduction.
At the moment, my pec and deltoid function have recovered steadily. I can press with 30-40% for 8-10 of normal loading with only minor discomfort.
However, there is still an obvious strain(or maybe tear) in my coracobrachialis. There is a lump of scar tissue or balled up muscle right under the coracoid process and I’m still experiencing pain and discomfort doing dumbbell flyes(transverse flexion) even with 5 lb DB.
I’m going to attach some photos as soon as I can.
I need help with rehabilitation training.
Any input and advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
