Tingling & Numbness in the Shoulder After a Workout


Weightlifters who experience a tingling sensation and numbness in the shoulder after a workout could be suffering from a temporary condition caused when there’s excess pressure on the nerves. Changing the way certain exercises are performed can eliminate these sensations, just as warming up and stretching properly before starting any physical activity. But, if the tingling and numbness persist, an underlying condition could be causing the symptoms.

The brachial plexus is a neural network that transmits spinal cord signals to the hands, arms, and shoulders. When these are damaged or injured, these nerves produce the well-known symptoms such as a tingling sensation, numbness, and even muscle weakness and decreased muscle control. The most common type of brachial plexus injury is called neuropraxia, also known as a stretch injury.
