Many of us are familiar with "tweaking" a shoulder through sports, exercise, or the many activities of daily living. If you've been in this position, you are probably no stranger to the chronic pain or discomfort that often lingers for days, weeks, months (or years) after the fact. Without proper attention, care, and rehabilitation these symptoms often get worse over time. To be more specific, according to BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders:
"The reported annual incidence of shoulder pain in primary care is 14.7 per 1,000 patients per year with a lifetime prevalence of up to 70%. Recurrence rates are as high as 25% and 40 to 50% of patients report persistent pain or recurrence after 12 months."
Whether you are the student athlete at the high school or college level, the professional, or the commonly underrated weekend warrior, you have likely had a taste of the discomfort mentioned above or run the risk of encountering it at some point in the future.
