Shoulder Injury Solutions - part 2

Posted Dec 29 2009 7:36am

Shoulder injuries are no laughing matter.

They can cause pain in a lot of daily tasks like reaching above your head for a box, putting on your coat, or even pumping your fist in a circular motion while chanting 'Woof! Woof! Woof!' to Arsenio Hall Show reruns. 

Yesterday I covered Shoulder Injury Solution: Relax, today we will talk about the second part to this series - Stretch!

After you relax tight, overactive, and short muscles with foam/body rolling you can now effectively create length to the muscles targeted.

We create more optimal length-tension relationships of our muscles with stretching the muscles just relaxed.

Here are 3 stretches for the muscles that we relaxed in the previous post.

Lat Stretch

Pectoral Stretch

Neck Stretch

These stretches will help to restore your optimal body alignment over time to improve upper body posture. 

By improving your posture, there is less likelihood that deep shoulder muscles, tendons, and ligaments will be pinched between bones of the shoulder joint.

Hold each stretch for at least 30 seconds and do before and after your workouts.
