Shoulder pain/limited rom


Bob-gar

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

 

My wife and I have both been having this problem for some time and we're looking for ways to remedy the issue. On the outside of my right shoulder, starting from the top and extending down the arm a few inches, I get a sharp pain and stiffness when lifting my arm up overhead. If my arms are in front of me, kind of like doing an OHP, and I extend upward, it doesn't hurt as much. But if my arms are at my side and I extend them outwards and up (imagine if you were flapping your wings) then I tend to notice it more. 

 

I'm thinking this is due to how I sleep at night and I'm already trying to  learn to sleep differently.

 

Any clues on what this might be? Or ways to strengthen and repair the issue?

 

 

Thanks

No clue of what it might be. I have something similar going on, limited ROM in my left shoulder from an old injury, I cannot pull my elbow as far behing on the left as the right and I cannot raise my arm from my side to above my head. It gets uncomfortable sometimes in day to day stuff and stiff however I don't have and problems with it in the gym. Make sure to stretch it well on your non workout days and after workouts and do a thorough warmup before you push heavy with it.If bench pressing or pushups get uncomfortable dropping the elbows down closer to my body (think wings lifted but not all the way) takes care it. 

Hope some of that helps a little bit.

Thanks for the info guys. We're both trying to work through it the best we can. I know when the muscles get stronger there, it gets better and doesn't hurt quite as much. But it also doesn't go away altogether. 

 

Anyways, thanks again!

I've been having what sounds like the same issue lately: similar symptoms triggered by similar activities. I haven't seen a doctor/physio about it but my sense is that it's shoulder impingement syndrome and/or rotator cuff tendonitis. You could try Googling those and see if the descriptions for these fit. IANA doctor, of course.
