This article illustrated a few cases of upper limb injury, and the author Dr Tan Chyn Hong also enunciates on the importance of not ignoring any shoulder pain. In fact, in National Service in Singapore, there are many recruits who suffer from upper limb injuries but are not aware of it, or ignore the pain. I heard of a friend's son who felt extreme pain while carrying a field pack, but persevered on through his outdoor field camp experience. He only saw a doctor after field camp, only to realise that his condition was quite severe.
