So, my left shoulder girdle appears to be a lot less flexible than my right shoulder girdle. I cannot get the back of my hand/wrist to touch the while with my left hand while I do scapular retractions, but I can with my right hand.
Whenever I try to force my left hand to touch the wall, I start to feel a tight, burning sensation that radiates from the bottom of my scapula and around my shoulder itself. Plus, I hear popping sounds and a “strange” sensation following it. It’s not painful though, just uncomfortable.
Whenever I do scapular retractions on a daily basis, those popping sounds become less frequent. When I neglect my scapular retractions, I feel more tightness and hear more popping.
Is is basically my muscles forcing themselves into position? Is there anything that I should be worried about? I don’t feel any pain at all at any point afterwards, and I have no loss in strength.
