    shoulder injury

    i heard a 2 pop's in my shoulder when performing incline press. my shoulder has been very sore and every time i lift it and rotate it around in a windmill direction it still pop's. havent been able to lift anything even hurts to drive my truck. anyone have any ideas on what i might have done to my shoulder.

    well i bet that makes you feel great thank gixzerboy for that! LOL seriously i had the same problem i feel my shoulder came out of joint! which is basically what happened! you prob put it back in so had a slight dislocation but no adverse affects

    Its quite common to do this rest it for a while a good 3 weeks i know it sounds harsh but i think you had a lucky escape from tearing your rotacuff as this is one of the most common BB injuries but rest it! I did it still aches sometimes but not too bad!

    but if it gets worse go to the doctors!

    You,re a bundle of joy gixxerboy!!

    A lot of the popping noises you here from joints is the air escaping from the fluid that surrounds the joint and is perfectly harmless like hearing your bones crack.Should you feel pain this when a tendon,muscle tear occurrs.

    If it does ache Ice the aera for approx 10mins than apply a warming gel/pack to the aera.The idea is that the ice will reduce swelling whilst the warmth supplies the deep fibres of the muscle with heat.

    Makesure you rest it and warm your rotator cuffs prior to working out.And as Ms Figure pointed out if it gets any worse see the Doc

    Sound advice. IMO don't take risks you wanna train for a long time, so time off may be painful in the short-term but benefical in the long-term.

    After a short break...how does it feel? Did you ice it? Does it hurt when it pops? have you lost any range of motion?

    ouch

    yep i iced it, went to the doc and he gave me some cortizone, came back in 5minutes later and it still hurt. have an mri arthrogram on friday to see it is my cuff is torn. already had x-ray and it was fine. does not look good for me. range of motion sucks, and it still pop's. i did find another doc that specializes in bodybuilding injuries. he worked on curt angle, and some other well known powerlifters. i see him tomorrow (tuesday). any other advice is welcome. thanks for the reply's everyone i will keep you all informed.

    Ive had the same thing, not a good feeling is it. Its the worst when you injure your shoulder, coz you basically cant train anything properly. I rested mine and took it eays at the gym. I actually took a bit of time off too. You have to recover and if its really bad then go and see a doc and hopefully he wont give u 2 much bad news.
