Mel Collie | What to do when your left shoulder hurts
So your left shoulder hurts, you think thats the problem and so you have it looked at, do exercises, but it still hurts.
Do something different, change what you are doing, a bit like changing your diet if its not working for you, you change a few things, tweak it.
A little suggestion for your left shoulder – look at your right shoulder.
What do you do with your right wrist, elbows, shoulder position when you are at the laptop, when you type, when you rest it on the table, when you hold your mobile, when you try a text. By doing corrective exercise on the side that hurts can work for a while, but you could find that after time, the original pain get worse or comes back, it can be called impingement of the shoulder for example.
When you are working on the painful left side, what happens is that you are sending messages up the nerves to the left side of your brain – the cerebellum area to the right cortex, which will improve pain if you have it in your right side.
So in a nutshelll, look at the other side to improve the neural connection to the side that does hurt.
Sounds wonky doesn’t it, its the kind of difference in my Corrective Exercise Program
