    Hey everyone,

    I've lifted weights on/off for a few years now, and I've sort of always had a shoulder problem but today it was much worse which is why I'm posting.

    When I'm bench pressing (bar only as example) and I bring the bar down to my chest, the front part of my right shoulder gets a sharp pain. This happens with weight too, but even with just the light bar I feel it. I have always had this but it has been minor before and i'd just ignore it.

    The second problem is with dips. These are far worse - I've basically stopped doing them because of this. When I reach the bottom of my dip, my front right shoulder almost feels like it's tearing and I'm forced to stop. It has been this way as long as I can remember.

    It's only ever my right shoulder - and as far as I can remember I don't get sore doing shoulder exercises.

    Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks

    So visting the school doctor is useless? Is an orthopaedist covered under Ontario's health plan? :x:

    Try a physiotherapist.

    I had something similar and they fixed me :)

    Made the mistake of letting it go on for too long at first and it developed into pain, numbness and tingling down my left arm and into my little and ring fingers.

    It's taken 2 mths but it's all good now after physio, exercises and posture changes :big grin:

    It may be something else but I think a physio would be the best place to start :)

    edit: my physio was a sports/back/musculoskeletal specialist one
