Today we learned: shoulders are complicated things!

Today we learned: shoulders are complicated things. Here you are thinking it’s just a joint, but it’s actually a complex. Mmm hmmm, there’s a bunch of joints and bits in there, which means shoulder injuries are tricky. Gardening, golfing, swimming, home renovations, working out…now especially with the debut of this gorgeous summer weather, shoulder injuries are starting to flare up. Not so surprising, since it’s essentially impossible to do something with your arm and not move your shoulder. No wonder they end up getting all injured.
