There is no doubt that the human body can be very resilient. Short of regenerating new limbs, our bodies are capable of recovering from large amounts of damage, including broken bones.

Shin splints is the name given to pain in the shin or front of the lower leg, which is usually caused by exercising. Shin splints are caused from the overuse and stress on your lower legs – Anything that involves running can trigger them. People who participate in high impact sports or anything that involves intense running are more prone to the injury due to the added pressure on their legs.
About a Rotator Cuff Injury
A rotator cuff is the collection of muscles and tendons that keep your shoulder stable, a rotator cuff injury occurs when there is a tear or inflammation in the muscles and/or tendons. With the injury located within your shoulder, it makes it very difficult to do everyday tasks (anything involving lifting your arm above your head).
Chronic knee pain is the reoccurring/long term pain, inflammation or sensitivity in one or both of your knees. This is pain that stops people doing a lot of activities in their everyday lives.
