I have a shoulder injury. Which muscle is injured?

Posted by xochitlteller

I have a shoulder injury. I can't even pick up a light object without pain under the following conditions, If my palm is up and the arm is bent forward at the elbow, If I rotate the palm inward (as in opening a door) there is shulder pain. Which muscle is screwed up and how do I fix it? I have full range of motion with every other thing I can do with the shoulder.. I can reach over my head. I cannot do a palm up curl with even 5 pounds without pain. Any extension of the right arm with a twisting motion at the hand wrist or causes pain in the shoulder.

Based on your symptoms, it sounds like you've injured your bicep.  Possibly the proximal biceps tendon.  I'd seek out a good sports orthopedic surgeon in your area and get evaluated.

Good luck and post your results.
