OK – if you’ve had pain for 15 weeks and been to the doctors 3 times and still aren’t any better, hopefully you understand that this won’t get better over night and passive treatment, where someone does something to you, won’t help.


You need to do something that helps you – and if you don’t then don’t expect to get any better.


Exercise, and probably anything that involves arms, shoulder and chest at this stage is going to hugely beneficial.


But be respectful of the fact you’ve been in pain for 15 weeks and so ease into your rehab – start with low weight and low reps. You’ll need to exercise at least 5 times a week for 20 minutes at a time.


Anything that makes your pain dramatically worse, leave it out.


Start really simple, things like shoulder shrugs, arm swings, curls, presses – YouTube is full of stuff.


Go do it, don’t expect miracles, do expect some discomfort, but you will get better.
