For quite a while now I can't seem to do pull-up's or lat pull-down's with a pronated grip
, without experiencing a nerve wrecking pain in my right shoulder.
Once I stop the movement i stop feeling the pain, but as soon as i hop back on the lat-pulldown machine, or the pull-up bar, this awful pain kicks right back in.
I stopped doing pull-ups and lat-pulldowns for about 2 months to see if the pain would disappear (In this period I did variations of rowing movements mostly). But when I tried some pronated pull-up's again, the pain kicked back in, almost instantly.
I went to my doc, and told her about this issue. She took a look and noticed my right shoulder was just a slight bit higher then my left shoulder (which I nor anyone else had ever noticed before in my life) but did not conclude this was the cause of my problem. She redirected me to a physiotherapist.
So I went to my first appointment with this physiotherapist and he told me I have a little tension on my right upper-trapezius&shoulder muscles, but did not conclude this was the cause of my problem. He did these movements with my arm and asked if it hurt. After about 10 minutes of moving around my arm in different angles, pressing on my shoulder and that kind of stuff, he told me that he couldn't figure out what the problem was. So I had to make a second appointment - he wanted to make an echo just to make sure..
At my second appointment we made an echo, and there was "nothing out of the ordinary" according to the physiotherapist.
Now I don't expect any miracles from a thread on a forum, but bodybuilding is my life, and this problem is withholding me from an optimal back development. I figured it's worth a try.
1. Has anyone experienced the same, or know someone who has? If so, your help is very much appreciated.
2. Is my physiotherapist an idiot? (Am I talking to the wrong person?)
