    Well long story short..
    I hurt my right shoulder about two months ago.
    Shit still hurts sometimes at various angles or movements...
    I can bench and etc but I still feel a slight discomfort...

    Looking for something that can keep my shit compressed and warm.

    So far only thing I could find is...

    Anything you guys recommend besides this? Or is this my only choice? :o

    Thanks

    Describe the issue more than you did.

    What did you do to injure it?

    What positions hurt it more than others?

    What rehab movements have you been doing to fix it?

    What does your warm up consist of?

    I was doing incline bench and on my last set I heard something popped... Being a fucking idiot I "worked through the pain"... I couldn't lift my right arm for about a 3-4 days afterwards...

    The position it hurts the most if I bring my arms parallel with the ground... at all angles..

    As for rehab movements.. I won't lie either.. I haven't been doing any.. I let it rest for a month but thats about it..

    Warm-up consists of 5 minutes low intensity rowing machine or something (its not really a rower.. its like I'm paddling or turning a handle with my arms.)
    Then I would swing my arms back and fourth making circles both ways...
    Then yeah.. thats about it ><

    :hsd:

    Had (still kinda have) that same problem with my left shoulder. Of course I was just lazy putting the dumbells away... Anyway, take at least a week off and use three Aleve per day, one every 8 hours. Don't continue using the arm at all other than very minor stretching. If after a week the pain hasn't dissipated, oh wait no insurance, if after a week the pain hasn't dissipated, you're fucked.

    Don't take the Aleve for more than 10 days though.

    edit: if you have a heating pad, you can use that a few times per day on the affected area.

    Do some research there are a lot of articles and books written on strengthening the shoulder. Work on range of motion and strengthening the rotator cuff.

    Invest in a foam roller and work on your thoracic vertebrae and the lat tie-in behind your arm pit.

    Keep the motions that hurt to a minimum. Ditch the barbell for dumbells and use a neutral grip. Ice, Ice, Ice.
