I tore my supraspinatus towards end of June which was fairly painful to start. I've not been allowed to swim, although I did tell the chiro that I was entered for HIM mid July and had every intention of at least starting it. Yes the swim was sore and quite shocking looking at the difference with my stroke from the photos, and the last part of the bike was particularly painful. It is SLOWLY getting better though. I have a bit more range of movement but go above 45 degrees and it's just too sore.
Having it scanned tomorrow (and been warned I might have an injection - hope not), although doubt that will change any treatment I'm already getting.
Has anyone else had this injury and how long was it until you were back swimming and doing weights? I used to love doing upper body strength work, but can't even do a press up on my knees at the moment! I'm not exactly the most patient person in the world, but now HIM is done, I promised I will follow orders. I don't think it's a bad tear, as I'm not in constant pain (although scan will tell tomorrow), so just wondered what other peoples expereinces have been. Thank you.
