Coronation Street star Lisa George, 50, has been suffering from chronic pain for the past few months after a shoulder injury. Lisa, who plays Beth Sutherland in the hit ITV soap, revealed that she had got herself a personal fitness trainer but her exercise regime didn’t exactly go to plan.

The actress explained that she wanted to improve her upper body strength but it triggered a problem in her shoulder.

The Weatherfield star shared her torment after getting a frozen shoulder which left her unable to lift her arm.

Lisa said that it was her trainer that noticed she had been “moaning” about her arm when doing plank exercises and lifting weights.

The Coronation Street star explained the condition would keep her up at night due to the constant pain.

“I’ve been in absolute agony,” Lisa commented.

“I started with a trainer back in November because I’m old now and have no upper body strength at all.”

The Beth Sutherland actress said the pain got “worse and worse” over time and she was unable to lift her arm.

Lisa continued to The Sun: “I couldn’t put a bra on or wear clothes that zipped up at the back because I couldn’t physically get my arm round there.

“I can’t put my hair up in a ponytail, that’s another thing in work I can’t do my hair, I just have to have it down so that’s why I’ve not had any mad hairstyles.”

Lisa commented that she has resorted to wearing baggy clothes because she has difficulty using her arm.

The ITV star explained that she later begged her doctor to refer her to a specialist who confirmed that she had a frozen shoulder.

Lisa has since undergone Hydrodilation treatment, which is a procedure that involves injecting a fluid into the joint space which expands the space breaking up scar tissue and loosening the joint.

The ITV star admitted the pain has been constant and has forced her to stay up at night.

The news comes just months after Lisa revealed she was left half-blind in her right eye after haemorrhaging behind her optic nerve four years ago.

Recalling her ordeal, the actress believed it may have been a mini-stroke but, fortunately, this was not the case.

The Corrie star had previously taken part in Dancing On Ice back in February of last year and finished in fifth place.

During the show, she suffered from multiple injuries, including a knee injury after a fall.

At one point during her stint, she was forced to cancel training to see a physiotherapist and it was later confirmed had a torn meniscus.

The actress was able to overcome her injury and returned to the show.

Meanwhile, Lisa also returned to Coronation Street in October and again in May.
