First of all, I'm living in Korea so I can't freely speak with doctors too well. I have had a shoulder injury for over 2 years now. I first noticed it after a session of heavy decline bench pressing. The next time I tried to press, I had very low strength and pain. This would usually tell me shoulder impingement right? But what I don't understand is it has been accompanied by spasm in the trap as well. The spasm doesn't seem to be triggered by anything inparticular, rather it just comes and goes. As well, the shoulder doesn't hurt all of the time, just when exercising, except for the spasming.
Docs have told me:
1. impingement synd.
2. SLAP lesion
3. imbalance of ant/post delt (not this, I'm pretty well-trained and knowledgeable).
Stretching has helped some. Training hasn't. TENS and ice hasn't helped.
I guess the next step will be to have an MRI.
