Hello everyone, about a year and a half ago I started getting shoulder pain from lifting, I was resilient but with a huge amount of stress at the time, the pain continued until a pop around my rhomboid happened whiled doing pull ups. Xray showed a possible c5-c6 bulge and was advised to give it rest. Weightlifting was my life, it was my escape and I couldn’t stay away too long so lifting kept aggravating the back area. A year and a half later im still dealing with pain, the pain lessened the last month since I stopped lifting completely. Im wondering why my resilience and continuing to workout didnt improve it but rather made it worse? I admit my focus was/is always on the area and if im doing things to make it worse. i feel like my pain is definitely TMS but im afraid to go back to working out since I have this year of trying to workout and making the problem worse. What should I do differently when I get back to working out?
