Image Statement: Any physical therapist will tell you shoulder pain is the worst to deal with. The skeletal-muscular structures are so complex, and the joint so necessary for everyday life, let alone the creative life. I haven’t let my repeated bouts of shoulder impingement stop me from working, though I probably should rest more. Now that I know I have a torn tendon I plan to pause work than demands a lot of strength.
