Eight years ago, I went with a friend of mine to the gym to practice bodybuilding exercises and it was the first time in my life that I practiced bodybuilding. Unfortunately, that day and when I was doing "incline barbell" excercice with unapropriat weight for me as a beginer, I felt a pain in the left shoulder, and the pain was increasing day after day espacily with "incline barbell" excercice . Now after eight years, the pain stell the same, knowing that I was stopping exercising sometimes for seven months to rest the shoulder without success, and I noticed that more the shoulder become weaker, the pain cause will be daily movements like driving the car. one day I went to the doctor and after scaning my shoulder with the echographie he tolde me that I have a shoulder tendonitis and this is the picutre imageof the echographie. any help please I don't know what I do.

    I would rest your shoulder and avoid strenuous exercise. I can't tell anything from your X Ray because I am not a doctor. I have neuropathy in both arms and hands and have a back injury and I avoid vigorous exercise to keep the symptoms at bay. Maybe try over the counter painkillers for the tendonitis.

    Hi Imedeloma

    Try using heat like hot water bottle and ice packs and soak in hot bath and completely rest your shoulder. Also, get yourself a shoulder strap from well known online site or from a chemist/pharmacist. You can use rub in cream to alleviate the pain ask at chemist/pharmacy can't give the name on here but a good one starts with letters VOL..... or you can buy pain patches....
