Default shoulder tendonitis

hey guys

ive had a shoulder problem for about 2 years now my right shoulder is slightly uneven to my left one and it makes me really mad. Ive tried going to a chiropractor and he said the problem was my neck so i gave him a try and he didnt fix it. I have also tried phisotherapy and the guy told me i had shoulder tendonitis and he made it a little better but still no good. Do you guys have any idea to what i can do to fix my shoulder i really want both sides to be even :(

any help would be greatly appreciated
thanks

What do you mean uneven? Strength wise? Size wize?

The first thing is to focus on the idea that there is "tendonitis" or something like that which points to an underlying problem. Don't focus on the size first, that is not the answer. Size comes as a side-effect of proper function.

Go into the last few posts of the injury sticky at the top of the training forum. There are some links to articles and different things that can give you some ideas and help you out, hopefully.

You can do some tests and check the difference in flexibility. Actually, go to the Stretching and Flexibility article located in the training articles section and the last post by me in that article is a link to some stuff you should do which may help also. Keep in mind that shoulder disfunction can actually involve things more that "just" the shoulder joint itself.

This is at least a direction to go in.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

thanks for the reply eric

by uneven i mean my left shoulder looks okay but my right one kinda hangs down a little and i also used to hurt before but since i went to physiotherapy its gotten alot better and ive regained my strength in the right side but it still slightly hangs down and doesnt look like the left one and its really annoying i feel uneven and funny when walking although people say they cant really notice it unless they look at my shoulders but i want even shoulders like everyone elses.

ive taken out some of the excercises that cause shoulder problems like the behind the neck lat pull down and stuff. Is there anything else i can do to have even shoulders again? :(

Ahh..I'm getting you now Nickk. I take it you are right handed?

If you look sideways in the mirror do you also notice that the right forward is more forward than the left? Do you have neck or trap pain on that side?

This is actually common...I've actually read a statistic that stated up to 85% of people's dominant side is lower (and more forward) than the left. Don't know if it's a true statistic but it certainly ponts out that it is common.

But it also seems to not cause a lot of people any problem. You say you used to have pain so obviously there was some ineficiencies. I suspect you can improve it somewhat but I don't know if you can totally normalize it. I know you don't want to hear that but I'm not going to tell you something I don't know.

Of course scoliosis would cause this but I have to assume that a physiotherapist would have caught that!

I will say that pretty much everybody that haven't specifically worked on it can find a difference between their dominant and non-dominant side even if it's not visibly noticable.

Wall-Slides exercise is one way to see this difference in action.

I have the exact same thing Nick. Your not the only one. And yes I'm right handed. I was told by a guy in the gym to train my shoulders with different weight to try and even them out. However I never tried it because it really doesn't bother me all that much.
