    So my shoulder is destroyed yet again...:wtc:
    Cliffs on previous injuries: born with a fucked up shoulder blade/cuff, not exactly placed right, had the problem my whole life. Last year took a couple months off due to same problem, back then my bench technique was not very good which may have aggravated the problem. Now i bench with very strict form, elbows tucked, shoulders together, etc. I don't even do a lot of weight, don't bench more than 150 lbs :ugh::rofl:

    So the resolutions... I kind of want to ignore it and sleep it off, but, it will no doubt come again.. What do you guys suggest as far as pain relief, and something to get the recovery up to speed?

    Another note, I could go to a serious doctor, but it would go to surgery probably.. Don't really want the surgery right now, going to destroy all i worked hard to get in terms of size, will make me feel like shit, etc.

    What do you guys suggest? Plz help, some advice from knowledgeable members would be very appreciated, thanks.

    Bite the bullet and go to a doctor...

    think of it this way, you can take a couple months off and have your shoulder fixed or be limited in what you can do and hinder your gain potential for the rest of your life.

    .

    I am in this boat now. I aggravated my shoulder early this year, did a self-imposed 6 week break on upper body, then slowly got back into it.

    And it barely helped :sad2: I am waiting for the MRI authorization from the insurance co. now.

    In the meantime I go apeshit on squats :bigthumb:

    straight bar squats can do a number on your shoulders, too... especially if its already injured.

    Well, yeah, they hurt a little, but not as much as pushing and pulling does :o

    go to the doctor, you will most likely get the standard rest/anti-inflammatory/ice route.

    consider getting this: http://www.inside-out-warm-up.com/

    ceaze recommended it when i was looking for shoulder rehab exercises. it's expensive, but it's been worth it for me.

    edit: most doctors will do anything and everything to avoid surgery, so don't just assume that's what they will hit you with.

    When my shoulders were injured I tried to concentrate on lower body and take it easy on upper body. Ended up messing my lower back too.
    Also waiting to be scheduled for my MRI for both lower back and shoulders.
