Saheeda Rahman asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:
I’ve had a shoulder pain for about 6 months now- the muscle at the front of my shoulder has a dull pain. It gets worse after my gym sessions- I go 3 times a week. I first started noticing this pain when doing pressups, the pain would go after a while but now after each gym session the pain is there the next day.
Any advice…. thanks in advance.

It sounds as if you can’t control where your shoulder (the ball bit)
sits in the socket (the shoulder blade).
Where you exert force or make the muscle work maximally when getting
stronger, you loose shoulder form and the joint rests in the wrong
place. The added muscle contraction leads to further joint compression
You need to work on the control of your rotator cuff and your scapula
stability. I would worry about trying to push too much or for too
long, but I would try to work well, through range with little or no
resistance and certainly no pain….
Give your self a 2 week break from the gym. Work on your cuff,
stability and upper back posture. Then go back, easy at first and
progress as pain allows BUT don’t loose the form…..
