The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body & Fitness “ DoYou NoticeYour Shoulders Getting Weaker?” STRONG SHOULDERS RELIEVE NECK PAIN & HEADACHES
NOW REPEAT THE TESTS: While sitting up straight and allow the spine to move, compare the difference in your shoulder motions or pain. If you suffer from neck pain, headaches or shoulder pain, don’t let it linger on and cause more damage. Call us today to speak with your physical therapist. Come in for a free consultation!
If you notice headaches and neck pain, try these 4 BASIC TESTS at the end of the day! STARTING POSITION: Sitting at your workstation, your home computer or the dinner table in your normal posture: 1. Try to raise both arms up in front and continue overhead without moving your spine. If you can’t get full shoulder motion or have pain, you probably end up slouched without realizing it. 2. Try to roll your shoulders down and back without moving your spine. If you feel this is difficult to do, your muscles are probably keeping your shoulders elevated. 3. Raise your arms up and out to the side like a “jumping jack” without moving your spine. If you have pain, you probably end up slouched without realizing it. 4. Try to clasp your hands behind your back. Now raise your arms up behind you. If you are unable to raise them very far, you have limited shoulder, spine or chest mobility.
