Shoulder pain is a frequent bane of those involved in weight training and active individuals, especially as they start to progress in age. It is important to be able to identify certain signs and symptoms of shoulder pain to keep long term shoulder problems at bay. The shoulder is a very complex joint. It does not share the same bony stability that the knee or elbow has. Shoulder has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body allowing it a complete movement.
For a better image of the dynamics of the shoulder, you can picture a golf ball sitting on a tee. The tee represents the glenold component of the glenohumeral joint, and the ball represents the head of the humerus. Any shift in any direction of the golf ball on the tee can result in a fall off. In order to function properly, the golf ball must stay centered on the tee.
If you feel a pang after upright rows or lateral raises that is making it difficult to sleep, don’t assume it’s normal post-workout pain. More than one-third of weight room injuries are shoulder-related, you feel a sharp pain and bad form is likely to blame. Raising your elbows higher than your shoulders can pinch the soft tissue of the joint, causing swelling and pain. Over time, this may result in chronic discomfort and pain that lasts longer that only surgery will relieve.
