Shoulder & Elbow Problems
If your shoulder or elbow sustains an injury, it makes performing simple tasks rather difficult. Both the shoulder and elbow joints are also very flexible joints – making possible injuries all the more likely. If you are experiencing problems with your shoulders or elbow then you may get swelling or stiffness in your joints, certain movements of your arms will become difficult or you may feel pain in your back.
Any sporting activity that involves repetitive movements can cause issues with the shoulder and elbow joints. Tennis elbow, golf elbow and frozen shoulder are all conditions that can affect people playing sports, but it’s not just sport that can cause these conditions – arthritis is another common trigger.
