    I wish that I knew about these common injuries earlier. I always used to think that an ankle sprain wasn't a big deal until I experienced it myself recently... I couldn't actually walk the day after I did it :eek: Luckily it's healing quite well now but I'll be a lot more careful in the future, and now I know what to do if it happens again unlike before.

    My physiotherapist says shoulder injuries are very common for those who work in front of the desk a lot and is worsen by improper techniques. I was one of them. Proper techniques will greatly reduce the chances of it, but too much desk work will weaken the shoulder muscles, so it becomes an evil cycle.

    As noted, physiotherapy helps, but only in minor cases. Best is to seek help early and practise proper techniques.

    If you work in front of the desk a lot like me, it is also advisable to do the exercises your physiotherapist recommends conscientiously, particularly if you play a few times per week. That's the best prevention against such injuries.

    I would also like to add that with age our flexibility declines, and this can place the shoulder/delt area under more stress than if we keep up with our stretching.

    Us "old people" need to stay loose! ;)

    Im suffering shoulder pain right now. It's the back shoulder muscle.

    Hopefully this is temporary. Transition phase after changing from t200 to vt80.
