Recently I injured my right shoulder...how, I don't know. The pain only seems to occur when I do pullups or dips...I have no issues doing overhead presses, pushups & benchpress, but I do feel it slightly when doing OH squats or deadlifts. It's a pain that originates inside the shoulder.
Does anybody have an idea what this might be? It's been nearly 3-weeks and I still can't do pullups....:uhoh:
Thanks in advance. Fraser

Try poking around in your muscles if you find hard lumps that hurt when you press on them. If yes, massage deeply, for about one minute, using slow strokes in one direction, with a ball against the wall if needed (e.g., shoulder muscles).
It is hard to guess from your description, but to me the prime suspects are the rotator cuff muscles (supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, subscapularis) and the biceps.
Try these links for more info and for directions on where to massage:
If massage doesn't help, go to the meds and have your shoulder checked for structural damage.
Good luck, and fast recovery,
