(injured) (rest day)

First appointment with Richard Clarke at Kendal Physio who is a shoulder specialist. He said it is hard to isolate which tendon in the shoulder is weak because they are all connected; better to identify which movements cause the pain and work with those. He did various tests and found my shoulders to be generally strong with full range of movement. None of the tests caused any pain, but when I described what I have been doing and what makes it hurt, we agreed it is likely to be pull-ups and climbing that do. He said I need to strengthen the tendon/s by doing those movements. If is fine (or even good) if it hurts a bit during...but not if it still hurts the next morning. So basically I need to stop being afraid of aggravating the injury (unlikely to be inflamed after all this time) and get back on the horse! Aim for gradual increase in load to strengthen the tendons without making the problem worse. Heavier weights and full press-ups also good.
