After reading many pages about shoulder injuries and physiology I'm getting confused. I injured my left shoulder about 4 months ago and although it's maybe 90% it's just not healing. I'm still staying away from incline pressing but have been benching again since July. (Must've been doing 2 sets of pullups at the end of a workout.)
Now it only gives minor discomfort at a point about where you'd end the stroke of a backhand in tennis. Swimming seems to create another 'point' or two, which goes away if I don't swim. (I thought it was related to a bicept tendon: Strangely, about 5 weeks ago I pulled a bicept muscle, left side. Was fine maybe 4 days later.)
Now a gym bro swears it's rotator cuff since I only feel it on the front side. Huh? Goes against everything I've read so far. He thinks taking 500-600 ml Aleve for a few days and then 200 ml a few times will clean out something or other. I have no pain, just minor discomfort at that one point.
I'm trying to follow various rehab exercises: bands and isometrics. Anyone else think rotator cuff is crazy? Because that would change my rehab exercises. Can't afford a professional diagnosis but I'm hoping to do so soon.
Really appreciate any knowledgeable feedback.
