This post is for my cousin, just looking for opinions. He plays high school football, after a tackle about a year ago his left arm has been going number after bench press and other push exercises, high rep or heavy. His left shoulder also give out while preforming overhead presses at about 80%+ of 1rm. Since then he’s seen two doctors, one suggests streching and to perminately stop lifting, the other diagnosed him with rotator cuff tendonitis, and prescribed 4 months in physcial therapy - which did nothing. Obviously the best bet is to see another - and much better doctor, but he’s fed up with the BS and for whatever reason turned to me for help. Right now I have him doing Alwyn Cosgroves 8 week to monster shoulders (Phase 1). If it is a problem with the rotator cuff, it might help…
Any suggestions or opinions, other then the obvious - find a better doc - he’s given up on them for now.
