Anterior Shoulder Pain and Discomfort


For the last 3 weeks I've been experiencing some pretty bad anterior shoulder pain in my right arm. The pain seems to be located where the chest and shoulder meet. It hurts with Resisted internal rotation, however un-resisted internal rotation and external rotation cause no pain. Shoulder presses and hand stand push ups hurt, however handstand holds don't. Standard push ups hurt when my hands are outside of my shoulders (the wider the more pain), however with hands in tight there is no pain. I'm looking for any guidance on what this might be and if I really need to just back off any weighted movements with my arm.

Re: Anterior Shoulder Pain and Discomfort

Sounds POSSIBLY like some pectoralis major insertion tendonitis.

Although you'd probably have to provide a picture and tell me what shoulder articulations hurt to confirm that... but as always if you want a proper diagnosis see a doc.

wfs for tendonitis if it is
