Shoulder pain after loud pop bench pressing. Could I have injured it?

Complex Joint: Yes. The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, etc) can cause pain. Some injuries of the shoulder are acute. And while you can certainly start w/ rest, ice, & nsaids (if not a problem for you), I also suggest you see an ortho for a specific treatment plan

I got extreme shoulder pain after finishing a set of bench presses, what could I have done?

Labral injury: You can injure yourself if you exceed the physiologic limits of your shoulder because of muscle fatique or poor mechanics. A sharp pain can be caused by a torn labrum (the fibous ring that keeps the shoulder in place), impingement, rotator cuff tear, or muscle strain. A sharp pain can be a sign of injury or can lead to an injury, so to be safe you should always do the bench press with a spotter. ...Read more

I have slight shoulder pain when raising my arm above my head and doing pressing movements. What is this?

Muscle/tendon injury: Without a history of a specific injury, your pain could be coming from the fact that you strained the muscles (deltoid or rotator cuff) around the shoulder or sprained the ligaments and joint that join the end of your collar bone (clavicle) to the shoulder blade (acromion portion of the scapula). You should seek a thorough orthopaedic surgeon evaluation if the pain persists past a week. ...Read more

25 year old female with upper left shoulder pain. I can't tell if it is occurring in the muscle or bone. Hurts when pressed. Early ewing sarcoma?

Shoulder pain: Try not to focus on "possibility" rather than "probability". Our brains often make us focus on the former as that is the greatest danger even if there is little chance of that. And in this case there is very little if not close to zero chance that your acute symptoms are a bone cancer. Give it some time and if persists or increases in frequency duration or severity than seek medical evaluation. ...Read more
