Currently going through my first real feeling of dealing with old man shit (although I know you've still got me beat GWN).

No real idea how/why but I tend to have a pattern of a few times a year tweaking something in my back/shoulder area that provides some low level of discomfort but is usually easily corrected through my normal, every two week chiropractor schedule. After almost two full months since my most recent tweak I am still not back to 100% and tomorrow will mark my fourth visit to the back doc in the last two weeks. At first it was a mild nuisance that didn't actually have any impact on my workouts but starting last week it started actually messing with my lifting and caused some terrible instability with my shoulder during a bench. What makes it even more frustrating is that before all this happened I had been hitting the highest weights in a bench progression routine that I've been (extremely slowly) building up since the beginning of the year.

I’m sure you’re aware but barbell bench is terrible for shoulders (health wise) anyway

I get an impingement around my rib cage in my back all the time. It happens over and over again.

Never had a problem recovering from it before but this is really starting to get on my nerves. Like I said, pain level is not very high so it isn't debilitating or anything but, other than when I tore an MCL, I don't think I've ever had something cause even a low level of discomfort for this long. Only silver lining is I've been able to modify most of my workouts to still get in some upper body work but I've defaulted to a ton of leg days.
