Shoulder Injury?

Shoulder Injury?

The Shoulder is the Most Versatile Joint in the Body! 

Hope everyone’s weekend adventures went great, and were injury free. I spent my weekend in the mountains of El Paso, Texas. El Paso has a very different environment and culture than that of Dallas. It was nice for a breath of fresh air, and fitness. While traveling I make sure to fit in my daily exercise; for me it is essential to stay in a routine, regardless of where I am.

While at the gym I decided I would lift some light weights and target the shoulder area. It was a good thing I improvised and did a few basic stretches to loosen up. The Shoulder is the most versatile joint in the body, which unfortunately with a lot of use, allows for many things to go wrong. Shoulder Injuries are usually due to activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion.

To prevent shoulder injuries you should focus on flexibility and strength within your shoulder. As well as make sure to warm up and cool down, before and after repetitive activity. The StretchRite is great for an all over body stretch; you can essentially use the StretchRite for any area needing attention. The stretches below are great for increasing flexibility and strength within your shoulder, which will decrease the chance of injury.

Each stretch should be performed two times a day, holding for 15 seconds each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The CoreStretch is also great for increasing flexibility and strengthening your shoulder.

Many times we forget that the body is an interconnected chain and if you do not take the time to address a problem it is going to cause other muscles to compensate and you’ll personally get to experience the domino effect – the pain will migrate and possibly cause even more pain & injury.

Make sure to take the time this week to stretch, and stay injury free!
