Streax, that's interesting. The shoulder press
or military press
then is one you would stay away from? Strange, because it doesn't seem to bother me that much, but then we're probably injured in different regions of the shoulder. Although, before the surgery, putting my arm in this position (like putting your hand up to ask a question in class or putting on your jacket) and then pushing it straight back would result in dislocation. This, in fact, is how the doctors would put it back in. After a few dislocations, however, just lunging my arm forward (like going for a loose puck, for example) would dislocate it. The surgery definitely helped and lifting doesn't seem to affect it. The opposite, actually.
Of course, I'd like to avoid anything that will damage the rotator cuff. Would reaaallly sloooowwww push-ups help with the increased tendon and ligament strength?
Been to physio on occassion, but it's too expensive to go to forever. I get an awful lot of grinding in my shoulder and stuff that feels loose, like cartialage just floating around. The best physio and doctors have given me is scar tissue, which the physiotherapist gets rid of with those ultrasound treatments.
