Hi. Started a boxing workout about nine months ago and is now having a shoulder issue. I remember hyperextending my arm a few times while boxing and think that might be the problem. The issues I am having now is a lot of popping and crunching noises coming from between my shoulder blades and top by the traps. It is slightly painful and very scary as I feel that I can not put all my weight on my arm when lying and turning over. Any suggestions on exercises or stretches to do? I really do not want it to become a chronic issues.
An example of it happening is if doing a dip, I can do it if my scapula is retracted and depressed, but if it is elevated and protracted, I get a lot of popping and crunching going on. I am still relatively flexible and can reach behind my back with no problems. Can I have hyperextended something and what is the best thing to do? Thanks so much.
