Weight Lifter’s Shoulder

Weight Lifter’s Shoulder

Pain near the top of the shoulder, especially felt during or after weightlifting, can be caused by dysfunction of the acromioclavicular joint, otherwise known as the AC joint. The collarbone, or clavicle, and the acromion, a part of the shoulder blade that wraps around the shoulder to create a stable complex, form the AC joint. During high impact movements in weight lifting, this joint can take the brunt of force if the shoulder joint is not providingefficient stability, especially during bench press and push-ups.

If you are experiencing pain similar to this, therapists at Body Gears can accurately pinpoint which muscles or joints are not doing their jobs efficiently, and can help you relearn the correct way to lift weights with correct techniques that promote solid support from the shoulder joint.
