If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain, orthopedic surgeon John M. Kirsch, M.D., says he's found a solution: Go ape.

"Man is the fifth great ape," Dr. Kirsch tells Newsmax Health. The others are the gorilla, chimpanzee, orangutan, and gibbon, all of which still swing from trees or brachiate.
"When we came down from the trees about 30,000 years ago, we stopped brachiating," he explains. "But we still have the shoulders of an ape that's supposed to brachiate."
Because our shoulders aren't getting the exercise that nature intended, they eventually weaken and become prone to injury, he says.
