    Soft tissue injury(Wrist) and shoulder problem. Tell me what to do..

    For the past 5-6 months I've had re-occurring injury's. Every time I seem to get over one another would pop up. Right now my wrist(Soft tissue injury) and my shoulder(Not sure of the exact diagnosis, something about a ligament being swollen and when I move it a certain way it pinches it?) are hindering me greatly. I constantly try to bulk, and try damn hard. But these injury's keep holding me back. It seems they go away and come back a few weeks down the road when I'm just getting into it. I have no idea what to do..

    I'm thinking now that I should cut down to 8-ish body fat so when I do(if I do) get better I can put on a really solid bulk without the worry of getting fat(quick at least). But I just don't know. My main intention is to bulk right now, but I just can't continue to lift with these injury's..

    Anyone with advice/similar problems? I'm sick of trying to figure this out on my own..

    The injury in my wrist is a soft tissue injury on the far right side. I can feel pain through the ligaments connecting to my pinky and finger next to it and well as the right side of my wrist. Also if I press down on a certain part of my for arm I can feel some pain. Doctor said it's a sprain. Though after about 2 months of it healing itself, it keeps re-occurring.

    I feel shoulder pain in the very top of my shoulder when I bench and do flys. Though it's usually at the top of the shoulder it varies. I've felt it in the front side and rear on separate occasions. Though usually it's in the front/very top of the shoulder.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    It sounds like its torn worse than the Dr. thinks. I was basically told the same thing, and it wasn't healing right. I finally was sent to get MRI's of my wrist, and they showed how bad the torn ligaments where. Tell your DR. you want to have an MRI with a T3 imaging unit. It is realy powerfull, and will give the Dr. a nice clean view of what is happening in there. If he says that there is no need for a MRI, try to find a wrist specialist.

    Sq, I am sorry to suggest that, but you might have an acro-myo-clavicular injury, also known as "weightlifter's shoulder" or osteolysis. This is an overuse injury and I struggle with one. 50% of weightlifters develop that...
    Yes, you can live with it, you can go on lifting and even competing (I do), but there are a number of measures you must take to avoid complications.

    I just did a quick search on the injury mentioned: osteolysis. I doubt it is this. I've had the same two injuries. I suspect you have tendonitis
    Work on your external rotators of the rotator cuff and stop lifting heavy. Stop Bench Press.

    Sounds like same shoulder problem I'm having. Really only notice it on benches when I start to go up in weight. Almost feels like it is in trap area sometimes. My ortho also says can still work out with it, only real treatment is anti-inflam's, rest, ice, and maybe cortizone. If it gets bad enough they can always go in and do a joint replacement........ Not.....

    Mine too

    Hey dude! My right shoulder is shot. Has been for the past several months. I went to my doc & she put me on physical therapy to try to strengthen the ancillary muscles (I told her it wasn't the problem)... Last month she decided I was right - imagine that!

    Now they want to do an MRA which, to me, is really un-cool. I don't like needles.. Anyway, it's a soft tissue injury which has been slowly healing. I'm working on deciding whether to stick it out & be careful not to injure it further, or to just go in & find out exactly what's going on. Unfortunately, it's put a damper on my training for months now. I think I'll probably just go get it looked at.

    My point is have it checked out & go with what your body (not your mind) is telling you. Keep us informed dude! Take care & best of luck...

    The doc says I have "supraspinatus tendinitis". And that if I continue to lift I could get a "frozen shoulder". I've been strictly committed to my diet and training for the 10 months I've been lifting, plagued with injuries and then this **** comes up. Apparently the only thing that can "help" would be physiotherapy. Which is out of my budget..

    You can imagine the state I'm in.
    If anyone has anything to say.. please say it..
