About the middle of November last year, I started getting soreness in my left shoulder that got worse and worse over the next few workouts, until it came to the point that I couldn’t work out. So I sought therapy (I’m in Korea by the way, which is why I need help).
First, I went to the hospital and saw an ortho. He sent me for physio which didn’t help.
Then I went to an American trained chiro who also does Graston technique. I went to him for double the amount of treatments that he said most people need. Still no improvement.
Then I went to an oriental clinic. The doctor there treated me with accupunture. (By the way, he and the chiro both said the problem was with the subscap.) It wasn’t a great experience getting a 6 inch needle buried in your armpit!!! Anyways, that helped but after I got back to lifting, the pain came back. Which brings me to today…
The best way I could describe the pain is like a pinching in my shoulder, especially during pressing motions impingment syndrome??)
But the weird part is that when I work out, even if I feel no pain, or when I play hockey, my left trap tenses up very bad and stays tense into the next day. Any ideas of what this might be and how to sort it out? I’m getting very near my wit’s end with this injury. Help!!!
