    Shoulder injuries still won't go away 9 months later. Help!

    I injured my left shoulder or something about 9 months ago and couldn't bench or anything. I was stupid at first because I trained on it, oblivious to the damage is was doing.

    Tried to go to a physiotherapist and it didn't work. Fast forward a few months of enduring the Pain and I'm now in france. I went to a supposed "sports injury" specialist. He did the basic tests to using my arm to see where the damage was. He said it wasn't to serious and gave me some sort of injection, followed by icing everyday and a 2nd injection in 7 days. Did it but didn't help.

    I tried going to the hospital one day saying I'd just injured my shoulder the same day, and they took me in, did an xray and basically knew I was lying about how I injured myself. They said it was tendinitis. They prescribed anti-inflammatories and 10 sessions with some guy who would run electrical currents through my shoulder with a patch, followed by icing.

    Did my last session over a month ago, and aswell as being slightly poorer than before, I still have this injury that won't go away.

    Why won't my injury heal? I've done everything that's been prescribed to a T, yet I still can't use my arm without shoulder pain.

    What's the next step? Should I do an MRI scan? I can't bare this anymore.
    The only lift I'm proud of at this point is a close stance, ass to grass zercher squat of 170kg x2 at 85kg bw. If only they held zercher squat competitions...

    MRI would have been one of my first moves as to finding what's wrong. Shoulder injuries, or any musculature injuries are a lot like electrical problems with cars, you gotta have a special device to help locating them. MRI's will help give exact information and then help the medical staff go from there. A lot of the sports injury "specialists" I've seen are under qualified guys who didn't want to finish medical school. They open up a small store front place and do business.

    I'd get the MRI and find out what the real issue is. Go to a medical facility, not some hole in the wall specialist place. It will cost more, but this is your shoulder we're talking about. It isn't a body part you can just not use for a while so it heals up itself.

    Good to hear that from somebody else for once. This is what I was saying since the start of the injury but nobody listened to me, and being under 18 with no job I didn't have any choice. Even the goddam doctor I seen half a year ago suggested I not bother with an MRI.

    And after all you can't really see soft tissue with an X-ray alone...


    I'll get the MRI ASAP when I get home in 2 days. Just wanted somebody's opinion first.
