Default shoulder pain - 09-21-2007, 10:33 AM

Hello Everyone
I have a sharp pain in the top of my shoulder
when I try and do any kind of fly's or front delt
workout. It feels like someone stabs you with
a knife.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do for it.
Or how I can work around it.
Any help would be great..
Thanks
Bill

Do something I should have done a long time ago.

Go to the doctor and make sure you did not tear a rotator cuff. or something else.

Mac is right - have it checked out. I tore my rotator cuff a few years ago. I attempted to "work through it" and ended up tearing it the length of the cuff and needed major surgery to repair it.

1. if it is a slight tear, it can be repaired orthoscopically. Rehab to gym time is down to 6 to 8 weeks. You can still work legs while you are rehabing as long as you put your hands in your lap and DO NOT USE THEM!

2. You may simply have a bursa (swelling) on your tendon which is "catching" while you are doing shoulder movements. This should be clarified by a doctor anyway - just to rule out other injury. The rehab time is usually 2-4 weeks with mobility exercises only - with the only resistance being bands. You will get pain meds (throw those away) and an anti-inflamitory (take those as perscribed).

Bottom line - get it checked as Mac said. Lay off of the weights until you do so - or you might end up making a BIG mistake.

any advice from mac is good advice.

I just ordered some Cissus Rx from somewhere
So hopefully I'll get it by the middle of the week.
Then I'll let you know how it goes..
If this doesn't help, then it's off to the doctor..
Thanks Bill

Hey
Just a quick note.
I've been on Cissus Rx for a week now. And I can say my shoulder
is feeling better. It's still a little sore. I've been taking it easy on the shoulder
workouts, and no fly's.
So we'll see how it goes in the next couple of weeks..

You maybe covering up the pain with the cissus but doing more damage because you continue to work on the shoulder. Pain is a signal something is wrong. Get it checked out. Or rest it for a longwhile.

Is the pain in the bone or muscle? If its is in the bone area then it may be an arthritic bone spur. These are common with weightlifters over 35 years of age. You should see a DR. Get more than one opinion especially if the 1st dr wants to operate.

Yeah my friend, I agree with Madman for sure. Get it looked at, no sense trying to work through the pain.....only gonna make it worse and no quality gains can be made when your hurt. I think taking time off due to an injury is tough to deal with mentally just as much as you wish you could train physically. Once the injury is good you'll bounce back fast, we all do! Good luck bro & hope you heal up fast!

^ditto. We tend to delay our recovery and sometimes worsen the problem by resuming training to quickly.
I know I'm guilty of it, sometimes it's just hard to say no.
