Frozen shoulder is a very painful condition. I’ve experienced it at one time, accompanied with neck pain and it literally placed daily activities….like carrying a shoulder/handbag, driving, bathing and working on a computer to be painful.

It is important that you train and develop your core before doing intensive body work exercise like leg pulls and chin ups. If you have [...]
Once, I tried to be a hero and attempted to carry a heavy box containing lots of documents. The box was very heavy- and at a sudden jerk movement, I lifted the box up- without following the normal precautions like bending my knees or lifting it gradually.

Thinking of going for a paycut job? Tried it. I dunno about you...but it sucks to be bullied by those who have some kinda superiority complex who often don't know what they are yattering about. All you get is crappy pay and not being able to make ends meet.
