Military press injury help

A while ago I started up with an olympic lifting club to really work on my technique. They took off all my weights and made me start from scratch. Long story short I hurt my shoulder training.. Probably doing behind the neck jerks or all the combinations of presses they were having me do. Anyways I'm wondering if there is a way to tell if it's a tendon or a muscle tear. I'm assuming it's a tear because it's been hurting for over a month and hasn't gotten better. It has a constant dull ache on the upper outside area of my shoulder. It radiates a pain into the bottom of my elbow. I will go see a dr. But I'm assuming in our community someone has had THIS EXACT pain/injury and can hopefully tell me more about it and what they went through. Thank you for the help.

upper and outer shoulder pain with radiation down the arm can be bursitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, partial tear, complete tear. It is difficult to say exactly what you have over the internet without an exam.

Re: Military press injury help

Can this be ascertained without a MRI? Thank you for taking the time out of your day to reply.

Re: Military press injury help

Physical exam by an orthopedic surgeon can be fairly reliable to distinguish these.

Re: Military press injury help

Thank you Dr Sean for the response. So I have to medical opinions right now. SLAP tear or torn labrum. For either of these which MRI would you suggest? I have just found out that nobody in my area in CA takes my insurance that I have had last 5-6 years. Appreciate the help.

Re: Military press injury help

Hey Sean, thank you so much for your help. Just thought I'd update you. I got the MRI and Arthogram and my Drs PA looked at it and said I don't have a torn labrum and that nothing is torn but I do have a rotator cuff injury. The PA's assistant called me- told me to elevate it and ice it and give it ample time to heal... so I said this happened in December and I already did all that. They told me they could refer me to a PT specialist. Do you think I should have an Ortho look at my results? Is it possible the PA wasn't able to see something an Ortho would see?

Re: Military press injury help

Thanks Dr Sean for all your help. I'm going to stick with PT and see if it gets any better. Really do appreciate you taking your time to help me. I know Drs have a busy busy schedule. Grateful for this crossfit community.
