View Full Version : Pain in right shoulder squatting

I do low bar squats and have been having some pain in my right shoulder.

It's at about the mid delt, and will travel down the outside of my arm and into my elbow, but slightly.

The pain is not unbearable but my hands shake when I raise them straight out above my head.

Is shoulder stability the problem here?

I suspect hypertonic bands of muscle fibers in your medial delts (that's referring pain further down).

If that's the case, a good soft-tissue treatment (or 2) should do the trick.

Thanks for answering quickly!

Could I do the soft tissue work on my shoulder with a foam roller?
