Default Anyone ever hurt their shoulder like this? With a left hook?

Last time I sparred ( I think it was like 5 days ago), I threw a longish left hook and it landed before it was supposed to. I think my sparring partner stuck his arm out to block it or something. I remember a slight sting, but with adrenaline and me being warmed up, it wasn't so bad. That night though, it started hurting really bad and the next morning it was even worse. I feel it at the very top of the joint where the shoulder connects with the collarbone. That ball shaped bone?

Since then its gotten a little better, but like I said, it was 5 days ago and I still can't throw left hooks. I have hurt my elbow and knuckles and certain bones/joint/ligaments and tendons in the past and usually rest healed them up, although my knee and foot never healed, I guess its cause you have to use it all the time. Should I just rest and wait it out like most of my arm related injuries, or am I permanently ****ed like my left knee and right foot lol?

do you think it's a rotator cuff issue? If so you may need to rest it for a while and ice it. I was able to heal my fully after rehabbing it and strengthening the small muscles around it

ice it and when pain free start doing some shoulder prehab, like external rotations, face pulls, band pullaparts, anything like that, to give stability to the joint

there is no reason for ANY boxer to not do this. You internally rotate (punch forward with force) thousands of times, and there is very limited external rotation (pulling your arm back with force), so its a prime recipe for shoulder issues if you don't take a bit of care.

Shoulder pain? It has to be a rotator cuff injury as it always is on this forum.

Rest for a week or two and see what happens. I agree with Small, any of those exercises to strengthen the joint. I can highly recommend band pull aparts, 100 total reps per day, really helped my shoulders.

Yeah.

I've got the same issue with my right arm, exactly the same way.

I threw a body shot and felt a pull in my right arm just below my shoulder. I can throw straights but no hooks or uppercuts.

I was sparring yesterday and ****ed it up, didn't tell anyone and did 7 rounds with one arm. I felt Godlike but it does need to just be rested for a while.

Read up on Clarence "Bones" Adams and the succession of injuries he suffered throwing left hooks. If my memory is correct, his first was similar to yours. You need to keep that hook short; that keeps the body behind it, the shoulders and the hips. You start throwing "longish" hooks, you are just swinging the arm and putting tremendous pressure on the shoulder. Especially if you are practicing this punch on the heavy bag.
