    Torn AC Joint

    Which is really a fancy way of saying sprained shoulder, but none the less I have one. The AC joint is three ligaments that connect the clavicle to the shoulder. The Dr. today wasn't sure how many I tore, I go for an MRI next week. Not a good way to start the new year, but at least I know where all this pain was coming from. And I got a nice script if Vicodin.

    My only advice is that you should avoid bench press for a while.

    Gee, really?? Thanks Klotz, I don't know what I'd do without you.

    Let me tell you, I benched with it a couple times, it actually didn't hurt while I was benching; but afterwards, whew it was bad. It hurt like hell when I deadlifted, and even hurt when I squatted Tuesday night. It got real bad on Christmas and I had to go to the Dr today and figure something out, which I did.

    Find a doctor or pt who's goal is to get you back training then listen. Too many doctors say don't do this and don't do that. I walk out of their offices unless they tell me their ultimate goal is to get me competing again.

    I've got some arthritis in my AC. I can't do BB bench press, but DB bench press doesn't bother it at all. Can't do dips anymore either......and I have to play Wii Tennis with my left hand.
    Honestly I was unaware you could tear anything associated with the AC. I thought it was a compression type joint with a cartilage pad.
