I have had my fair share of complications, aches and pains. With each injury I modify the workout and work my way back up - in this case down. :) Start with wall push-ups, then use your kitchen sink/counter, then bathroom sink, couch, step, and then floor. You can also do bench press. There are several rotator cuff exercises you can do to also help the recovery process.

I used to think - "Pain is temporary" but some pain you should not ignore. Especially when it comes to joints. Good luck!

Here's a link by a personal trainer who worked her way back into pushups after a rotator cuff injury:

In my own experience, putting my palms against a wall was the beginning of the process of rebuilding.

I have a lot of pain and problems with my shoulders and my doctor said not to do them. I need to find something else that will work the same muscles without straining my shoulders. Any suggestions? I have what is call rotator cuff syndrome. I'm just coming off months (since March) of pain in my shoulder caused by push ups. I have lost a lot of range of motion and strength. I have been able to start stretching again but I still have trouble raising my arms above my head.
