How can the trapezius-strengthening exercise ease shoulder pain?
Rick Olderman, Physical Therapy, answeredThe trapezius-strengthening exercise targets key muscles that help move and stabilize the scapula (shoulder blade) as the arm moves. Most people with shoulder pain have weak scapular rotators and stabilizers, which this strengthening exercise helps correct.

What's the difference between tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow?
Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow are both forms of tendonitis that occur at the elbow joint. Tennis elbow is inflammation of the tendons on the thumb side of the elbow (wrist extensors). Golfer’s elbow is inflammation of the tendons on the pinky side of the elbow (wrist flexors).
