When the shoulder muscle is compromised either from excessive lifting, pressure, overuse, injury or tearing, the bursa (fluid) can become inflamed. Inflammation of the bursa is called bursitis and can cause a great deal of pain.
Frozen shoulder is often a result, which many people visit their General Practitioner for as the first point of call.
As the story so often goes, “I went to my GP, then had scans, then had cortisone injections” ALL before even ever having been referred for physical therapy!
The issue with this route of treatment is, at no stage has there been an investigation as to what “caused” the pain condition.
In this Self Care Guide, we offer simply solutions to shoulder injury rehab to can help speed up your recovery.
