By nature our feet and ankles are biomechanical wonders–miraculous in their strength, form and functionality. However, at the same time they are constantly susceptible to injury.
The part of the body we call the shoulder consists of several joints that work with tendons and muscles to allow the arm to move in many directions. We can bowl a perfect game or reach the top shelf thanks to this system of joints, muscles and tendons. However, it is possible to overextend the shoulder and end up with pain. When your shoulder is painful, everyday life activities become difficult.
