I have recently decided to fix my horrible lat flexibility and started daily stretching. After about the fourth day of stretching I my left shoulder became extremely weak. I couldn’t flex or abduct it properly at all. I went to the physio and he told me that I had stretched the ligaments in my shoulder and to do light scapular retractions/depressions so that the shoulder gets used to the new ROM.
I have coped it in the other arm now. If I place my hand on the opposite shoulder and bring my arm forward I can’t feel the front delt contracting at all. I can’t extend my elbows behind my body as the shoulder joints are very weak and unstable.
Anyone else had this injury or know anything that can speed up the recovery process?
