Exercises For Chronic Shoulder Pain

My client had shoulder pain for a few years. Being a competitive swimmer made it seem a common injury with the mileage and intense training schedules. Luckily it didn’t exactly stop him from swimming, but the pain was enough to seek help. Each time the imaging showed a different diagnosis.

Having several diagnoses didn’t help. The pain wasn’t going away. The treatments for the shoulder weren’t helping either. Eventually he didn’t just feel it while swimming but also during daily activities. He felt hopeless.

After all these years with pain, he thought this will be with him forever.

His last visit with the Doctor suggested a break from swimming. Perhaps that would help heal the shoulder. The break was difficult as it was a part of his life but the pain made the decision easier. The break ended up being longer than expected when all sports were put on hold.
