    Default Couple questions

    My trap muscle is injured, and has been for quite while. It feels bette than it did. But once in a while I do something to make it flare up and it reminds me it's still there lol. For instance front squats really hurt it. No matter how I hold the bar or how lght I try to go. And I know rest and ice is what I need to do. I use front squats as an alternantive to leg press, because I just have free weights. Is there something else I can do that wouldn't put the pressure on my trap muscle?
    Also I have pain across the front of my right shoulder like running along my collar bone. It's a constant dull ache and again if I put a wrong kimd of pressure on it, it hurts. Any suggestions, what to do for this?
    I have not been to see a DR, because I know they're gonna tell me I can't do anything. And that just isn't an option. I have alot of animals to take care of that requires heavy lifting and using shovels and rakes. And pushing a wheel barrow.
    And I don't want to quit working out
    Thanks in advance

    Seek a doctor, thats your problem.
    Yes it is an option
    Your health is far more important than lifting. You don't make paychecks or make money off lifting weights. its a hobby.

    What you are describing does not sound like a typical muscle strain ........ You need to see an MD. You may surprised at the options they can offer you. Get well soon !

    Oh, and you should not work out if it hurts - untill you can see the Dr, alternate heat and ice and may want take some ibuprofen or aleve every few hours

    You don't want to quit workouts but it could be necessary.

    With your type of pains a supplementary efort will do more harm.

    Is there at least an alternative for front squats?

    Goblet squats or landmine squats might not be painful for you. But I will also second the suggestion you go see a doctor. Perhaps an orthopedist, especially for your shoulder. A referral to physical therapy might be helpful too.

    Seek a physical therapy consultation. I would gently move the bones that hurt to stretch the ligaments and promote healing. Unfortunately I am not at your location I think. but there are physical therapists that do this form of manual therapy I would seek them out. good luck!( ignored for insurance to cover visit often a referral from a physician may be required.Also an X-ray to rule out any bony abnormalities in the area could be prudent but dependent on sensitivity of the area to joint movement and physician discretion)
