Just curious here…I have been reading a lot on rotator cuffs lately and from what I’ve seen, most rotator cuff injuries have something to do with a torn or sore muscle involved with the shoulder…
I followed a few tests online to try and see what might be up with mine, but my pain seems to be more or less the actual bone itself in there. I had the same thing happen about 3 years ago, and it went away after a couple of weeks…
Basically, it hurts my left shoulder (inside) to do things like put on a shirt or bench press…skull crushers are also out of the question.
There are a lot of exercises I can still do that don’t affect it at all so I’m still trucking along at the gym. It seems that I hurt it more in every day situations like lifting something the wrong way or like a jerk on the arm.
For example, I helped an old lady at the store today get a shopping cart out of the rack that was stuck, and when it freed…ouch.
Anyway, I read a bunch of stuff that is said to rehab the rotator cuff, but I’m thinking that may all relate to a hurt muscle and not the actual bone itself.
Is there anything that someone can recommend that may have experienced something like this? I mean it’s definitely getting in the way of my gym work as far as triceps and chest goes.
I haven’t really been the type to go see a doctor – not even sure what kind of doctor I would go see for this type of thing…I realize that’s the smart thing to do and no one can ‘diagnose’ a problem, just curious if anyone has experienced something similar and gotten through it.
Do you think glucosamine/chondroiton would help? I bought a nice bottle then was reading a bunch of stuff how that can negatively affect your body’s insulin response.
