A long journey towards diagnosis and treatment

Topic • 1 reply

I picked up a shoulder injury around February 2014, I don't even remember doing it so maybe it's not an injury as such, so diagnosing the cause of the pain isn't simple. After all if I remembered the circumstances in which it was damaged it would at least g...

So frustrating for you Jim but at least you seem to be on track now. I'm sure once you are properly assessed with a rehab programme in place, you'll be hitting that pull up bar in no time! Wishing you strong diagnosis & a full & speedy recovery :-)

Swimming is great cardio work apparently, I know a lot of people, when injured, will go down to their local pool and do a few laps to keep the heart in good condition.   Should have really considered this myself once!

new "wonder" tape for muscle injuries

Topic • 8 replies

I was fairly sceptical about the effectiveness of kinesiolgy tape but am now a convert! Apparently it has something to do with wave patterns on the tape which help to relax overused muscles and support underused muscles during recovery from injury. I found...
