Sore shoulder from kettlebells training

Published on 11th Dec 2012 at 19:08 by Admin

Do you have a sore shoulder? Maybe it's been there for a while, or keeps returning? There are many reasons why it's sore, bar the obvious belt that you got. Overuse, misuse, abuse or underuse (Chaitow).

Are you getting treatment? Does your therapist work on your opposite hip?

This is an area I would suggest that they look at and treat. If you look at the work of Tom Myers, you will see that your shoulder has a fascial connection to your opposite hip. So from your left hip area, there is a link of muscle fascia through the left internal obliques, to the right external obliques, to the right pec minor. This line can continue down the right biceps brachii and into the right forearm/hand too. This line can also continue from the left to hip, down the left leg.

So if the fascia of any of the muscles mentioned become hypertonic (over tight), there can be dysfunction anywhere along that line of muscles. I don't focus on the area of pain only, I like to investigate above and below the site of injury. If you have a sore shoulder, try foam rolling your opposite hip area, the TFL, upper recutus femoris and glute medius area. Roll the opposite hip area too and compare it, to see if there is any major difference.

Ask your therapist to try some myofascial release techniques on your opposite hip, you should feel release after a couple of sessions. 

Of course make sure that you have a good rehab programme too. If your shoulder feels good after a treatment, don't dive back into full on training. Ease back in with good quality corrective exercise movements.
