Sticky Thread Sticky: Quit doing your own bench liftoffs!!!

I've been in and out of numerous ortho offices the past 6 months trying to rehab a myriad of shoulder issues. A posterior labral tear being the root issue.

Intercostal Muscle Strain - Can I still train?

I got what I'm fairly sure is an intercostal muscle strain the other day. It's not completely agonising or anything but it's enough to make me wince whenever I cough or have to bend my spine. I can't run without pain and even just lifting my arm up is painful, sleeping is a bit difficult. The...

Question Small Long Head Bicep MUSCLE tear, any advice?

Hey guys, so about 2 months ago I apparently tore my bicep muscle. The doctor told me that after examining the ultrasound it would scar over very nicely with no surgery. However, I've been doing PT and I don't think it's really been helping much. I know they're the "pros" but I've had doctors that...

Lower back - muscular or spinal?

As I try to learn and wrap my head around good form on the squat and RDL, I had a thought about the "pain" I have in my lower back area. It's not pain as such, not sharp or intrusive, or triggered at any particular point bending forward or backward. It feels more like a constant ache. When I go...
