I mentioned this imbalance briefly in a post before but didn’t get too much input.
I’m dealing with an old skiing injury where I dislocated and broke the “ball” off at the end of the humerous where it attches at the shoulder socket. I was immobile with that shoulder/arm for about 5 months (this was 10 years ago). I went through moderated physical therapy…mostly stretching excercises to try and get full range of motion back.
I have since been plagued with a weak and signicantly smaller shoulder (my left…which is already the weak side). The front deltoid is the biggest problem and I have tried all the training tips with little success (i.e. - use DB exercises, lift w/ weaker arm first, use same weight as stronger arm). I have injured my rotator cuff now twice trying to “catch it up”.
Is it possible that the muscles/ligaments attached themselves to the bone differently after the injury preventing proper growth (this is a long shot…no idea really)?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. After all this time (pretty consistent training for the last 4 years), I feel like I am not making any headway.
