    Rotator cuff insertion

    I have been having this nagging problem in my shoulder and damn sure it's in the infraspinatus at the point of insertion. It's been a good 3 months now and is starting to effect my workouts. The wife can dig her elbow into it and it feels perfect for a few hr but then starts back up. Before, it was give me that post workout throb but it seems to be getting worse. Started a round of Naproxen this week and dropped a shoulder exercise that seems to bother it. Been keeping the reps high and not testing any heavy weights.

    Anyone deal with this before and what did you do?

    I hurt my shoulder playing beach volleyball over 20 years ago. The pain is still there today. It gets worse the heavier I lift and certain lifts I have to avoid.
    Ive been dealing with it ok so I will keep doing that. I feel surgery may make things even worse.

    good luck Snake.

    I had a similar issue for YEARS.
    Couldn't hit Delts at all! Would have to really warm up for chest and that wasn't a guarantee that it wouldn't become inflamed half way through my workout....

    Ended up being a friken rib out. Got adjusted and it was night and day in a matter of a two visits.

    I messed up my teres minor years back. Itís part of the rc, thin muscle under the infraspinatus. I stopped benching and over head pressing for a little over a month I just repped out really light dumbbells. Also I worked a lot with bands and the Trx. I did this one exercise laying on my side, iíd press a 2.5lb dumbbell straight up towards the ceiling, then very slowly lower the weight like the eccentric of a reverse fly. Keep up with the massage too hurts like a bitch but is necessary. Hopefully the basics help it heal but of course if pain persists a good idea to get it looked at.

    I've been using a casual bowtie for a month now.. Definitely notice a difference in a long term shoulder issue.
