shoulder impingement
« on: December 16, 2020, 05:59:08 am »
Gave some detail in my journal of how I think I got it.

But the pain occurs when I rotate my shoulder internally, meaning stick elbows to the side causes pain as there is slight interior rotation but facing the hand down, such as pulling my trousers up causes pain and then with my hand in that position elbow pointing up and hands down at the side if I push my hands towards the back major pain in the front delts and also I get pain in the rear delts.

I did the hawkings kennedy test, which showed this impingement.

Currently doing the band work where arms at side and elbows bent and hands facing front at chest height and bands at the side and I stretch the bands side to side motion.

Below is a video of the ones I was referring to the one handed ones, the two handed one they do where they bring the hand towards the waist causes pain.

But also rotating shoulders externally with same position as i mentioned when pulling trousers up instead facing the hand in front grab rubber band and pull hand upward rotating shoulders externally.

Anyone got any other tips to help

Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

Arm also aids the legs in driving it down with power - seifullaah73

shoulders are complicated things

Hard to figure out what causes what, so I just went the shotgun approach to fix mine - 

stretch and mobility work, soft work tissue on pec, pec minor, all areas of the traps, front delt, subscapularis in armpit region, upper bicep tendon, lats.

strengthen and activate mid/lower traps, serratus, and cuffs
