TIPS FOR BACK AND SHOULDER HEALTH

There’s no question that Americans lead sedentary lifestyles, and that we spend way too much time sitting in front of our computers and TVs, or hunched over our phones. Because of this, we can sometimes experience back and shoulder problems that cause pain and limit our mobility.

Here are some tips for dealing with back and shoulder pain when it comes.

. Back pain. Sitting at a desk that is too low or too high can often cause strain on the back. The solution is to use ergonomically designed chairs and desks that you can adjust for the least amount of strain, but you should also make sure you get up and walk around at regular intervals throughout the day. Sitting for long periods has been proven to cause many health problems says a local chiropractor.  Another remedy is to strengthen your core muscles through planking-type exercises.

. Shoulder pain. Our shoulders are subject to a lot of stress in our daily movements, and they can be vulnerable to strain and injury. Regular stretching exercises for the shoulders and pectoral muscles will enhance shoulder rotation and lessen pain. Making sure your spine is flexible and mobile (which a warrington chiropractor treatment can do) will ease the pressure on the shoulders also. Certain exercises will help, including sub scapular pushups, side lying external shoulder rotations, and the woodchop, which is a cable exercise.

Our modern lifestyle is definitely causing more pain and discomfort in certain parts of our bodies, and we need to pay attention to these signals and address them in order to get relief before the problem gets worse and wreaks havoc on our daily life.
