Positive self belief is the key to recovery from pain, say Uresearchers. The research team studied over 1,000 people undergoing physiotherapy for shoulder pain. They found that people are more likely to recover if they have the confidence to carry on doing most things, despite their pain.
Why are fat deposits more likely to occur after tears of the shoulder's rotator cuff, compared to other types of muscle injuries? An increased propensity of stem cells within with rotator cuff muscles to develop into fat cells may explain the difference.
