We see quite a number of different shoulder pain cases at The Mayfair Clinic, and we have covered recently the main causes of sharp shoulder pain here. One of the more common injuries to the shoulder that we particularly see in men, is a deep pain at the front of the shoulder and can often be caused by workouts at the gym. This pain usually is most common at the top of the bicep tendon. There is generally a lot of information circling online about this type of pain, but it’s usually a combination of multiple areas of the shoulder becoming injured at the same time.
The shoulder joint is peculiar, in the sense that it’s usually a very unstable joint that does require a nice, supportive structure of muscles around the ball and socket joint. These are then able to hold the shoulder joint in the correct place, for it to function effectively. There are certain activities and lifestyles that can make shoulder pain more likely due to this joint being unstable. Although certain exercises at the gym can cause and exacerbate this type of pain, it’s also common in those who don’t go to the gym as you’re not strengthening the area so it can be susceptible to injury.
Shoulder Pain With Rounded Shoulders
If this has happened to you, or you notice you have rounded shoulders, it can cause worry or anxiety as it is quite a difficult process to take control of and recover from – mostly because you need to find the right exercises that will start to improve the symptoms. One of the most important steps to take here is to actually get some treatment done to the inflamed and irritated areas of the front of the shoulder joint, and then you need to learn how to actually start re-engaging the back muscles in order to strengthen and open up the posture again.
Strengthening your shoulders, and exercises to improve the posture requires two different approaches that you’ll need to bare in mind while training. To strengthen your shoulders, it’s worth investing in a set of exercise bands as these will provide continual support as you progress and become stronger. Try rotator cuff rotations. To do this, have your exercise band hooked onto something sturdy, such as a door handle, start with your arms by your side, hold the exercise band in one hand, lifting the arm of that hand to a right angle, externally rotate your arm to the side and return back. These can also be done by internally rotating your arm as well. Other exercises that can be done include chest fly’s, these can strengthen your shoulders and target your upper back as well, which in turn will help to correct your posture. Although chest fly’s are traditionally done in the gym, you can also use an exercise band to complete these at home.
