“Aaah, no aches and pains, splendid”…said no-one ever.
We sometimes take it for granted when we don’t have any aches or pains – then comes along a paper cut, and suddenly we regret not appreciating life before this! Shoulder pain is no exception to this rule, particularly given how crucial these joints are in helping us to function with our normal daily tasks. So when something goes wrong in that region, it can pain us in more ways than one.
Have you ever gone to lift something before yelping out in pain at your shoulder?
Or had to brace your fall in an untimely slip or trip, reaching out with your arm only to find the top of it now aches?
What about the times when you’ve been redecorating or moving to a new house and felt a nagging discomfort the next day that isn’t going away?
Yeah, we’ve been there (we’re not immune to injuries either sadly). Thankfully, we’ve come back from shoulder pain and injury too. And we think we can help you to do the same.
