I've had some shoulder pain for about 8 weeks now and it has got to the stage where it is effecting the intensity of my workouts.
It seems to be chest/tricep days that are aggravating it the most.
The pain is coming from the trigger point at the back of my shoulder and the pain is spreading to the backside of my delt.
I saw a physiotherapist last week and he could feel the tightness at the triggerpoint so he stuck two dry needles into it ( 2.5 inches deep and hit bullseye OMG! )and taped my shoulder back a little. He believes that some muscles are developing faster than others (in particular my traps) and it is pulling my shoulders forward which is causing friction on the rotator cuff.
He recommends that I avoid excercises that cause pain.
Is this a common problem for beginners?
Could my routine be causing this?
Have any of you guys suffered this pain/injury before?
Do I really need to take a break?
What can I do ???
