Shoulder Pain
An_251706 posted:
I am a yoga instructor working with an elderly woman who told me this:
"The pain first began in my forearm and was fairly unbareably, however it seems the pain has sprung up to my shoulder joint around the rotator cuff."
Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Her doctor told her it was bursitus, but I feel that he was only implying that in regards to her shoulder. I was wondering if it was related to her forearm, though and if you had any suggestions on exercises. I have some basic ideas, but have been avoiding any "arm over head" exercises. Would any of you also have suggestions in regards to how I can help with this?
Thank you!
