So I had this issue for a while now with my shoulder, injured it during incline bench press, and after getting an MRI it shows there is an AC join issue and a 5.4mm supraspinatus tear. I will have a doctor’s appointment soon but from the information I gathered online so far I should try physical therapy and if the tear is bad then surgery.
Was wondering, what exercises should I avoid to not injury it more after I get surgery or I finish physical therapy. I basically heard to avoid anything above 90 degrees or over head per say. Also to avoid arm flaring, but then how can I exercise side delt, front delta and chest properly? Does anyone have this injury or has had it that can give me some exercises for these muscles that would be safe to do in the future to avoid damaging the rotator cuff more?
