Default Shoulder injury and rehab

hey guys, when i started lifting on my own i didnt know exactly what i was doing and i never strengthened my shoulders, after overworking on a chest and tri day i had sharp pains in the front of my shoulder and after wrecking my dirtbike i couldnt put my hands behind my head, im still in physical therepy and the pains are almost gone and im doing some weighted db movements to get them stronger and i have alot of my flexibility back. I am just wondering how quickley afeter PT will i be able to be hard at it, i was also wondering if anyone else has any comments or has had the same thing happen to them (tendonitis in the shoulders). and is there anything i can do to speed the process besides listen to my PT

Thanks fellas -antwan

Does your PT have much experience working with athletes or with strength training? I was pretty lucky after I sprained my ankle...got a PT that was a bodybuilder and he was very helpful.

Your PT knows best. Because he's able to work with you from day to day and assess your progress so frequently, he'll be able to make the best call on that. My only advice is to listen to him. If you start back too quickly, then the odds are good that you will hurt yourself again. Good luck with the recovery.

ALL great advice. I'm going through it myself. Unfortunately, when I woke up the doctor told me that he was able to take out the 1/2 inch long bone spur but the rotator couldn't be repaired. Well, what does that mean? I've asked him and he said it was because the bone spur was thrashing the rotator for a long time. He just said to ease back into things and don't rush it. The PT seems more optimistic but it still hurts quite a bit even after two months. Everyone I've talked to says it'll pass but it does suck and sleeping is still a b***h at times. I guess I'm just going to have to be patient. Good luck to you..

I had a problem with tendinitis a few years ago in my left hand. I have always been a fanatical guitar player. Sometimes playing 3-4 hours a day. And that started when I was in grade school. I found that I wasn't stretching enough before playing and that in itself was what was causing the problem.
Ironically, for years now I have watched guys walk into the gym and just start lifting without even a few shorts minutes of stretching. If you think about it, you can probably count on one hand the times that you've seen someone walk into a gym and stretch before a workout. That said, many of the problems when it comes to tendinitis can be traced back to improper or an almost complete lack of stretching before a workout. JMHO..

Well if you're talking about static stretches then that is a good thing. While increasing your ROM, static stretching also decreases your muscles strength which actually encourages injuries. However, dynamic stretching and warmups with light weight are always a very good idea. Warmups should also not just be "light" it should move through the range of weights that you will be lifting so as to acclimate you body to lifting heavy. Obviously you should keep the volume very low when the weights get nearer to your actual lift so as not to burn out before your actual sets.

Certainly listen to your PT.

some other things you can discuss with him are prehab (work that you do to keep your shoulders healthy, even after the pain goes away) and if you can manage it, I would put more focus on vertical pressing, military presses and the likes. This movement does a much better job of stabilizing your shoulders and strengthening the entire shoulder girdle than bench press (which can be problematic to the shoulders).
