    shoulder popping

    since i started doing int/ext rotator cuff exercises, 2 weeks ago, my left(the one i have injured twice) is popping alot , loudly. its a tad sore but rom is better and actually is feeling a bit stronger. its really making some noise thou.

    is this from the cuff being swollen from the isolated cuff exercises? It doesnt bother me while doing my main workout routine

    I don't know if it's the same type of popping but the back of my left shoulder (my weaker side) pops when I do my push-ups. I was told as long as it is not painful (mine is just a little discomfort) that it will get better as the muscle grows. Mine does not make a loud popping noise, but I can can feel it and if someone has their hand on my shoulder blade they can feel it when I work out.


    Edit: why is there a lightbulb above my post? Did I do that? Ummm

                Will you explain exactly what the exercise is please? I have read a few times about the importance of keeping rotator cuffs in good shape but I'm not quite sure how I can do it bearing in mind I don't have your fancy equipment yet! I do have good wrist weights and some theraband.

                Fuente - knowing your views on pts you'll be interested to know that I asked my PT yesterday about rotator cuffs and she didn't really have a clue!

                My shoulders are rarely painful any more but I do get clicking at the front of the right shoulder if I've been leaning on it when on the computer for example. I don't think it ever used to do this before my injury.

                    Do a search for rotator cuff here on cc. There are several excises you can do to help strengthen them. Just beacuse you guys have sucky PT's doesn't mean they are all useless and don't know anything.

                      Hope I can get this to work!

                      Use a theraband hooked to something and use from your chair instead of the cable system,

                      You can look this site over for all kinds of ideas that you can adapt for use from a chair and using tubes or bands.

                        Cool. Will try those.

                        Aly I agree with you, my pts at the spinal unit were excellent, they even came out drinking

                          the 1st one is the best for me, it gets in deep

                          aly, your rite not all pt's suck. i would say about 80% are idiots. Over my 18 years i have dealt w/ many..i have meant some great exercise physiologists(SP) who were personal trainers, not specifically for sci, they were great. they trained you like a regular person, not a crip. i worked w/ one at my local gym for 2 years after getting out of rehab, we became great friends. He got me strong.

                              I use 3 pound free weights and blue tubing, I think it is a little stronger than my blue theraband. Funny how such a small excercise can make such a huge difference.

                              fuentejps I think that is th first time you said something remotley nice about a pt, proud of yeah , all of mine have been great. Current one is like a personal trainer. My first pt was the best, she did a great job with everything even about ordering my chair. Can't say the same about the vendor I just ordered my new one through, she wanted to play the she was right I was wrong crap even though it was my ass in the new chair that was uncomfortable. Can't get a new one through insurance for another 5 years I wont make that mistake agian!
