Shoulder pain is something that can be treated so don't worry.
One of the most common causes of shoulder pain is the rotator cuff. That is the part that helps circular motion and stabilises the shoulder.
There are many ways you can hurt your shoulder, by heavy lifting and constantly having your arms above your head.
Rotator cuff injuries are a common problem among athletes from all sports, especially pitchers.
Shoulder Pain Relief
Relief for shoulder pain should be discussed by a Doctor first and foremost. But when you at your house watching TV try using ice.
If you are having shoulders problems don't move you shoulder in a wild fashion because you will injure yourself further.
Shoulder stretches and any other stretches are very important to improve the quality of your life.
They are especially important if you are stuck in one position for long periods of time, such as computer users. You will know when you start to feel tight because that is your body telling you to get up and move around.
Shoulder stretches are also really important to make sure your shoulder has the required mobility to perform a certain sporting action, such as a golf swing.
For example, if your shoulder is tight, you will have trouble getting into an effective back-swing position. Similarly in tennis, you might have trouble with the serve. In swimming, you may have trouble with the front crawl.
Types of Shoulder Stretches
There are two types of shoulder stretches, Anterior and Posterior.
Anterior will stretch the front of the chest and shoulder. First, stand up straight with your shoulders back and relax. Put your hands together behind your lower back.
While your hands are together raise them up while your elbows are kept straight. See that wasn't so hard.
Raise and lower your arms until you feel its enough and you are warmed up.
You should hold the stretch for a minimum of 30 seconds, and perform 3 times per day.
Now for the posterior stretch. This one will make you feel better as well.
Hold your right arm across your body and grab the back of your right elbow with your left hand.
Now pull the right elbow in as far as you can so that your right fingertips can reach your upper back.
Then repeat for the left shoulder.
Again hold the stretch for a minimum of 30 seconds, and perform 3 times per day.
When you’re on the computer next time remember these words of wisdom and do the exercises. You will be glad you did.
