I tore at least 2 ligaments in my shoulder in 2003. Never got it repaired. I understand that ligaments don't magically reattach themselves. Plan to start SL 5x5 soon but am a little nervous about the shoulder. Will it get sore/have pain at some point or am I risking a situation where the joint fails and I drop heavy shit on myself? Or is that not really how it works?
Addl details: Basically lifted a heavy object from the ground to over my head to pass to someone in the back of a truck. Shoulder was sore after that. Doc said it was Bursitis and would go away in a few weeks. Fast forward a few months and there's no pain, but 100% of the time I got in the car and reached up for the seat belt to plug it in, shoulder would make a crunching/popping sound. After a few months I get it checked out because that's clearly not normal. Dr. injects a dye solution into Bursa sac in shoulder to take an Xray I think. Dr. says they'd have to take the ball of my arm out of the socket and reattach the ligaments and it would cost a shitload and have weeks of recovery time. I didn't have insurance and couldn't afford it and couldn't afford the recovery time anyways because I needed to work. Turns out injecting the fluid into the Bursa Sac must have shifted the ligaments around because the clicking/grinding stopped. Haven't done exercise of any kind in forever, so I haven't tested the joint in years.
