Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington has never been afraid of a challenge, but her dramatic crash landing in Channel Four's winter sports show The Jump, was traumatic.
Chronic neck pain is one of the main causes of disability worldwide.Conventional medical treatments aren’t always successful in providing long-term pain relief. As a result, sufferers of chronic neck pain are often seeking alternative approaches to treatment, such as acupuncture.
Having bagged an armful of Olympic medals in the pool, Rebecca Adlington knows all about hard work and injuries. So she must have thought she knew what she was taking on when she signed up for Channel 4 celebrity winter sports show The Jump. Still, Rebecca got a nasty surprise when, while practising a ski jump at over 30mph, she lost control and dislocated her shoulder.
On Good Morning Britain, Rebecca talks about dislocating her shoulder while practising for the show, and having acupuncture to help in the aftermath.
She wasn't the only star to be injured during this series alone, with the majority of the celebrities taking part having sustaining some sort of injury.
