Shoulder Pain Sport Injury
Shoulder joint is the most complex joints in the human body. There are lot of moving parts that need to work together. Shoulder injuries are mainly result of overuse leading to rotator cuff injuries, impingements and/or tendon injury. Those overuse injuries are often associated with lack of mobility, muscle weakness and muscle disbalance.
It is absolutely crucial to identify the root cause of the pain. Which muscle, tendon or ligament is causing the disbalance or weakness. Without proper assessment and diagnosis your pain will not go away. Furthermore, without highly specific sports injury rehab program, injury will linger for month and even years.

Back Injury Sports
Tons of people experience back pain while playing sports or the next day. Back pain is usually multifactorial (number of contributing factors) in nature. Reasons for back pain is jumping into game like situation without proper warmup and/or proper muscle activation prior the game. Also, in my opinion most common reason for the back pain is playing your favorite sport after prolonged period of inactivity. Core muscles and low back stabilizing muscles work together to produce maximum stability in the lower back area. Any sport injury rehabilitation should encompass sport specific movements and focus on the root (cause) of the injury and not just pain alone.
