So, in January 2011, I injured my left shoulder by doing lateral raises. It was HORRIBLY painful....not responding to 800mg. ibuprofen every 6 hours, would awaken me from sleep, etc. Eventually went to physical therapy and the pain resolved after 6 weeks. This summer, while doing the same exercise, I AGAIN ended up with bursitis....this time on both sides. I did the ibuprofen/naprosyn thing again, but skipped the physical therapy. I am feeling well now and want to start back lifting. I'm pretty scared about doing it because I don't want to risk another injury. Anybody had this? Suggestions for how to start back? Thanks.
