The last couple of weeks i have been experiencing some shoulder pain and i can't seem to figure it out why i'm getting this pain. I workout 3-4 times a week and play competitive hockey on the weekends. I'm thought that i might have gotten hit but i can't remember feeling any pain after playing. I know that it's not dislocated because it only hurts/pain when i'm lifting weights, particulary chest and shoulders. (also hurts when doing pushups) Does anyone have any ideas what going on here?
It sounds like a rotator cuff injury or tendonitis. I have the same thing and have had it for almost a year. I don't recall injuring it and I had to stop weight lifting because of it. It hurts to reach above my head or behind me. I've tried chiropractic but think I may need to go to an orthopedic dr. or sports dr. I was talking to a physical therapist who had both of her shoulders operated on-she was a competitive awimmer and used to do the Butterfly Stroke and said that shoulders are used so much that sometimes they just "wear out"!! Good luck!!
