Injuries in shoulder training

Shoulder training

Shoulder injuries very often occur in bodybuilding (bodybuilding, athleticism) while performing exercises to build muscle, because, in an effort to develop all parts of the deltoid muscle, the athlete constantly makes various movements that increase the risk of injury. It is worth recalling that in comparison with a strong femoral joint, where the head of the femur is deeply embedded in the swollen cavity of the pelvis, the shoulder joint is very mobile.

Shoulder trainingThus, the shoulder can be characterized as an articulation in which the connection of the head of the humerus with the joint cavity is provided mainly by a combination of muscles and tendons. When performing exercises for the development of muscles, most injuries occur when the tendons of Headache Treatments the deltoid muscles stretch, the muscles themselves are damaged in exceptional cases. As a rule, injuries are serious and most often occur when the exercise is incorrectly performed or, more dangerously, due to prolonged friction of the structures in the joint capsules under stress.

As in other sports, for example, in American football, severe collisions or sudden movements of hands entail serious injuries with dislocations and even rupture of tendons. When performing exercises for pumping muscles, the main damage is the so-called “joint syndrome”, or “syndrome of podkromialno-beak-like conflict.”

In some individuals in exercises involving the lifting of hands, for example, a press due to the head or side ascents, the tendon of the supraspinatus rubs, clinging between the head of the humerus and the osteo-ligament arch formed by the lower side of the acromion and the acromioclavicular ligament.

As a result, there is inflammation, usually affecting primarily the serosa, which protects the supine tendon from excessive friction, then shifts to the very tendon tendon and, if not treated, eventually affecting the adjacent  subaccessive tendon, and in front – a long the head of the bicep.

With the raising of the hand, pain occurs, and subsequently, irreversible damage to the supraspinous tendon can occur, accompanied by calcification and sometimes even rupture. As a rule, this last pathology is observed in people over forty. In different individuals, the space between the humerus and the acromioclavicular bone-tendon vault may vary in different ways.

Some athletes raise their hands in the sides with excessive friction.

Therefore, in such cases, it is necessary to avoid pressures due to the head of all kinds, too high lateral ascents, and also stretching exercises.

Therefore, when doing an exercise for the shoulders “press with the barbell” you need to lead the elbows forward. When lifting dumbbells in the sides should find the right trajectory of lifting with painless performance of the movement.

It should be noted that everyone reacts differently to the same shoulder injury. Some can even perform all kinds of lifting hands, squeezing and even sometimes injuring tendons, while never suffering from painful inflammation.

ShoulderDuring the research, some athletes showed tendon ruptures of the supraspinous muscle, although they never complained of pain. Another cause of pain in the shoulder joint is associated with an imbalance in the distribution of muscle tendons around the joint capsule. We recall that the head of the humerus is securely attached to the articular cavity of the scapula by a combination of muscles and tendons adjacent to the joint capsule along or across it. This set of muscles is in front of the subscapular muscle, a little closer to the outside – a long head of the biceps, from above – the supraspinatus and, finally, from behind – a pinched and small round muscle.

Spasms, overstrain or, conversely, insufficient tension of one or more muscles can lead to the fact that the shoulder joint is in a dangerous position. This position during the movement of the hand causes friction, which leads to inflammation.
