Neck pain and strain on shoulder press!

hey guys,

I was doing push presses today and really pulled my neck. Its painful to move and straighten.

Its happend alot of times before, and its always when im doing any overhead press..

my form is okay to be honest and the weights arent so heavy (50-60kg push press, or around 45kg shoulder press).

Has anyone else got the same problem?

Re: Neck pain and strain on shoulder press!

If you're straining the neck muscles hard yes there can be pain and the spine can be thrown out of whack. Try massaging tight muscles.

If pain/etc. gets any worse from moving I would see a PT *right away.* Get it fixed -- the longer you wait if you're out of alignment, the MORE times you have to go get therapy.
