      Hello everybody,

      since 6 months I cannot Train because of an impingement in my right shoulder. I have an Inflammation of my shoulder tendon and bursa. It appears my arm is pulled upwards to my shoulders making this complicated but I cannot train the lower shoulders.

      I am uncertain if the shoulder plan is a good idea for me at the moment. It sounds like something for People who are able to train. Can anybody recomend this for my current Situation?!

      Thanks and have a great day!

      Gerrit

      I recommend having your shoulder checked out.
      It has been 6 months and you are not seeing improvement.
      The healthy shoulder plan may be part of your plan going forward. Knowing what you are dealing with is first step.

      Dear Kaitlin,

      thank you for your Reply. I am sorry, I didn’t state this explicitly but I am indeed seeing a specialized doctor. I am getting anti-inflammatory injections every three weeks. It was getting better, but now I am stuck, where I can use my shoulder but I am not allowed to train yet.

      I just bought the plan and will try if it helps to strengthen the shoulder. Thanks again for replying. Have a great week!

      All the best

      Good to hear you are seeing a specialist.
      Listen to your specialist. Yes, it can be frustrating when you want to be doing more, however, hang tough with the process.
      Are you able to do drill/skill work with pvc?
      Work within cleared ranges, positions, skills.
      Use this time to get positions and technique dialed. Following an injury you have less tolerance for deviations in technique. Most wouldn’t take time away from training to focus on skill/drill work. Use this opportunity……..  your skill/drill work is your workout. You’ll have plenty of time to workout once you are cleared. Prep for the next step.

      It took 6 months to get to this place so it will take some time to get things resolved.
      Set goals for your time in PT and as you progress toward your regular activities.
