I strained the hell out of my right front delt on thursday. Of course, it didn't hurt 'til Saturday night. I think the bursis is involved too.
I iced it all day Sunday. Numbed the hell out of the whole shoulder. So. today it doesn't hurt. Shoulder pops when I do non weighted "side" raises, (This tells me there still must be some swelling becuase the popping comes from around the bursis) and I have NO strength in front raises. No PAIN. I notice the lack of strength in raising a glass of water to my lips.
Should I apply heat now to stimulate blood flow for healing (the lack of strength), or keep up the ice to reduce the swelling (that's why it's popping)?
Don't let anyone tell you form isn't important.
