To preface this post, I have done a lot of reading on the issue with relation to impingement of the shoulder but not much of it seems to apply to this sport of weightlifting.
I have seen a doctor and he suspects that it's not a tear, but impingement. I have good mobility in the shoulders, even the right shoulder which is affected. I can do proper scapular wall slides and can still snatch and jerk.
However, whenever I do this my shoulder becomes very sore and inflammed. I have been stretching a lot, doing foam rolling and icing it. I have also been warming my shoulder up before any lifting and strengthening my external rotators and rotator cuffs.
I don't want to stop weightlifting and so I would appreciate any feedback to remedy this situation.
I am able to do full cleans and squat and so I am doing that. What else could I do to work on technique for the snatch? High Pulls? Also, should I switch to RDLs and front squats considering the back squat might cause furthur impingement?
