Participants free from any pain specific to the upper limb, chronic pain or other disease.
- Changes in temperature of pixels on the upper extremity: infrared thermography [ Time Frame: Day-1 (baseline assessment, pre exercise before painful stimulus), Day-1 (baseline assessment, pre exercise after painful stimulus), Day-2 (24 hours post-exercise before painful stimulus), Day-2 (24 hours post-exercise after painful stimulus) ]A thermography image of the upper extremity of the body will be taken on both days of assessment before and after applying a painful stimulus. Changes in colour pixels will be analysed to determine temperature changes.
- Changes in Pressure Pain Thresholds: pressure algometry [ Time Frame: Day-1 (baseline assessment, pre exercise before painful stimulus), Day-2 (24 hours post-exercise before painful stimulus) ]Changes in pressure pain thresholds will be determined with pressure algometry over the infraspinatus muscle. Pressure Pain Threshold is defined as the exact time point where the pressure is first being perceived as painful.
