Fairly certain I have a tear of some kind in my rotator cuff now. I have always benched wide, way wider than I should for my shoulder width., index fingers on outer rings. This has lead to a few pec strains. Just coming off a pretty severe pec strain and decided to clean up my bench to ring fingers on rings. I began noticing pain over the next two weeks to the point I can no longer bench 1/3rd of my former weight without pain. Seems that half way through the descent I am hit with pain till I reach about the same point on ascent. I have repostioned my hands and to the my wide grip but the problem is still there. Have also been having issues sleeping on that shoulder as well as expierencing pain when making sudden movements or awkward movements. Like reaching for things at odd angles.
I did some research and tried a couple of tests which has led me to believe it is a shoulder impingement. Before everyone shouts get an MRI. I have high deductible insurance and can’t swing it at this time. So I mentioned this to my buddy who is an MD and he offered that if I could make it out by him he would hook me up with PRP injections at little to no charge. So has anyone tried these for tears in the shoulder and had any luck?
