View Full Version : help please with supraspinatus injury

26-06-2005, 02:37 AM
Over a year ago I noticed pain in my left shoulder when I would do bench press movements and overhead presses. I tried to fight through the pain and avoid these exercises but this did not improve the problem. Some time later I went to the doctor who suggested I had a supraspinatus unjury and sugested I go to phiysio. Long story short, five months later I have little improvement. Does anyone have suggestions on what exercises or steps I can take for rehabilitation.

Lots of things you can do for this injury but no guarantees. Worth having an ultrasound or MRI to show size, if any, of tearing of the tendon.

Cortisone injections, nitrate patches and arthroscopic surgery are all treatments which may help if rehabiliation doesn't
