Hi I’ve been going around chiro and physios to solve this injury of mine but none of them have been helpful…
I experience pain around the anterior shoulder closer to tendons near the armpit when I adduct my arms on a horizontal plane; The strange thing is that I would only experience this pain when I adduct AND retract my scapular at the same time (which causes pain when I benchpress).
Many chiro and physio would give me solutions that would help with injuries regarding pectoral/shoulder tightness. However, I have already tackled most common causes but to no avail. I’ve tried strengthening my upper back, releasing tension/stretching my pecs and shoulder. The pain would still appear if I RETRACT MY SCAPULAR and benchpress.
I do recognize that I have a seemingly proper but not perfect benchpress form. I was doing 286pounds for 5x5 at 178 bw before I decided to rest up. Grip on bench is just outside shoulder width which is quite narrow, with elbow tucked slightly.
I hope there would be someone out there that could help me with this nagging injury of mine.
