Shoulder Problems

Your shoulders are your body’s most movable joint. They are almost always in motion, helping you push, pull, swing, lift, reach, carry, and even make gestures like hunching, shimmying, grooving, and shrugging.

As a result of all their near-continuous use, when shoulder problems flare up even indirect movements, like walking, can be harder.
