Shoulder pain, neck pain and headaches go hand in hand. Injuries, stress and positions of poor posture are all contributing factors to these common conditions. Today's exercise is a great one for those people with "tight shoulders" that never seem to go away. This information comes from the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative in partnership with the Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation.
1. Stand with your affected arm relaxed by your side.
2. Place your unaffected hand on your opposite trapezius (the area between your shoulder and your neck).
3. Raise your affected arm up to the side and use the hand to make sure your aren't lifting the shoulder as your arm moves.
4. Repeat 10 times 3-5x/day.
