Thanks Hayley,

Back in the day when we used to strongly mobilise frozen shoulders in the mistaken belief that we could somehow stretch the capsule out; I had my 68yo patient pinned to the bed while I levered her arm up. She grimaced, sweated, contorted a little and then finally yelled “killer diller, killer diller”. I paused and said “what’s with the killer diller stuff?” She caught her breath and said “ killer diller – all our family say it when things really hurt, my mother said it and so do my grandparents – it really helps when the going gets tough”. I continued mobilising and got quite a few more “killer dillers”. Funny thing – is – I told my wife and now we both say “killer diller” when something really hurts. Makes us smile and it sounds much better than the “faaaark” or similar that most people say.
