I guess my question would be, why continue to do barbell bench presses when it hurts you? If this were a specific movement required in your sport, it might be worth it but it seems you can do the dumbbell version (and presumably dips, etc.) without pain. I'm guessing you're probably under 30. As you get older, you learn to accommodate more. If your body doesn't want you to do that right now and there are other equal or better exercises, why worry?
