Re: What I Learned About Shoulders

I haven't had any relief in nearly three months. I tried four sessions of the Graston Technique (myo-fascial release)which didn't help at all. Tomorrow, I get the results of my MRI.

Re: What I Learned About Shoulders

I have had tingling in the left shoulder, neck and jaw for a couple of months now, in addition to intense heat sensations. My upper trap area is painful also, which the Dr. suspects may be referred...

Looks like it might cause some shoulder damage if one were to slide the handles too far.

One that tests muscular strength, muscular endurance, body composition, flexibility, and your cardiovascular aerobic fitness level.Your vitals can be checked also- re...

I guess was regarding supplements as a catch-all term for anything additional taken with a normal diet. That's why i mentioned olive oil. But i can see now that it is really a food staple.
