Bum shoulder screwing with my workout
The Doc says I have a bone spur in my left shoulder that is pinching a nerve sending shooting pains down my arm. I also have cysts which are prob. from all the injections in my shoulder. Then there is the torn tenden. He says I need orthoscopic surgery but I can't afford to close my business for weeks while I recover. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to adjust my workout to avoid the pain and doing anymore damage. It's mainly military presses, flat bench and butterflies that I have trouble with. Using dumbbells opposed to barbells helps a little also. Pulling movements and curls are no problem. Thanks guys.

Only resting is going to help you. Other than that lower the weights . If you continue to work through the pain you screwing yourself in the long run. Then surgery is the only option. Orthoscopic surgery you can recover much quicker too.

Yeah, I'd stop the workouts as masking/working around the problem is not going to remedy the said problem, and will only serve to make it worse.
I just had my knee scoped 3 weeks ago. It's still swollen, and it sucks, yes, but in 4-5 months it'll be WELL WORTH the sacrifice I've made now.
