David Wright sheds light on laborious shoulder rehab process | New York Post

This doesn’t sound good.

“When I first started throwing I could tell it was just not right because I never had that sharp, shooting pain going into my shoulder like that,’’ Wright admitted. “There’s just no way of doing what I’m capable of doing at third base and being productive for this team with the pain.’’

Wright referred to this problem as a bump in the road. I asked him: Is this a bump in the road or the end of the road?

“I mean, I’m just doing what the doctors are telling me to get back on the field as soon as possible, that’s all,’’ Wright said, hoping for the best.

“I feel the shoulder kind of working a little better than it was when I first tried to start throwing, now it’s just a matter of finishing the program and hopefully starting a throwing program.

“But that’s assuming everything goes well, the shoulder program gets me to the point where I can throw without sharp pain.’’

It's kind of lame that I can't seem to find info on what is causing David's shoulder problem. I see that it's "impingement", but what caused the impingement? I had shoulder impingement after my shoulder (fractured humerus) healed incorrectly after a skiing accident. I had a herniated disc later, also, that had nothing to do with the bad shoulder. I'm guessing that he overbuilt some shoulder muscles to compensate during one of his back injuries, but that's amateur opinion only. Maybe he's just falling apart.
