Today we are talking all about shoulder health and posture. This area is going to include your neck as well as the shoulders themselves. It’s also going to include your upper back and your lower back. What we are seeing a lot of, since so many people now are sitting at computers all day long or staring at their phones for long periods, are forward rounded postures. They’ve got rounded shoulders, their shoulders come forward, their head protrudes forward, and their shoulder posture is very poor. Then they come in and tell us they’ve got shoulder pain, or they’ve got neck pain, or back pain.
We ask them, “How often do you get up from sitting?” Some of them say they haven’t got up all day.
They may be sitting there five, six, seven hours in that same position. So things are breaking down. Postures are breaking down. The bottom line is most of us in today’s world spend so much time in a forward rounded position, even walking, being on your phone, reading, your computer work, that neck, that our necks, shoulders and backs are breaking down.
With that in mind, we’re going to show you some shoulder exercises you can do to help prevent pain, as well as strengthen the muscles to help with your posture. You will not need any equipment, these are easily done at home. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don’t miss a thing.
