      Strange, it will allow me to reply in the body but not the original post….

      I believe we’ve identified the source of the pain that I get down my upper arm when I do any pushing/pressing movement. My left infraspinatus is a nasty/painful trigger pointed train wreck.

      Any mobility work that will really target that area and what would be the up stream/down stream areas to address?

      I’m currently “enjoying” laying on a lacrosse ball and flossing by moving my left arm.

      (Don’t ask me why it’s repeated below, that’s way beyond my current pay grade to understand.)

      What browser are you using? Try clicking the right most button under the Leave a Comment Section. That should un-grey the typing area.

      The only way I can post in the body is to click the far right icon “show rich text.” All the other go dark.

      I just tried creating a new post and had to hit the same button to type in the body of the discussion. I know the site is optimized for Mac’s because that’s what everyone there uses. I’m a computer guy so I notice those things.

      We just can’t use the other 22 formatting options……..

      Thanks for your help though.

      Now about infraspinatus…………? Anyone?

      Hey Alec,

      What have you done as far as targeting that area with some good ole smashing? Check out Kelly’s post from two days again. It’s a good one!!!

      Alec–
      I click the same icon before being able to type.
      Have you used a ball softer than a lacrosse ball?
      Yoga Tune Up ball for example?
      With an inflamed area a lacrosse ball may be too hard and your tissue doesn’t actually relax to absorb the work you are doing.
      Are there any soft tissue providers at your gym or area?

      Thanks for the input.

      I’m using a YTB. I was getting an ART treatment but now they’ve going on vacation till almost New Years. In any event, I’ve been working on it (PT/ART/massage/home mobility) for a month+ now with little resolution.

      Working on things and not seeing improvement you are hitting where the situation originates.
      Have you watched the MWod episode about not seeing change?
      Are you working up/down stream of the problem?
