Say Goodbye to Shoulder Tightness With Chiropractic
By Sandy Schroeder
If shoulder tightness leads to tension and pain after a long day, you might spot the problem with a picture. Have someone take a picture of you working and check out the rounded shoulders that may be causing the problem.
Many of us hunch over a computer at work and then go home and slouch on the couch. Breaking out of the problem may be as simple as discovering chiropractic and reversible stretches that help us straighten up and feel better.
How Your Chiropractor Helps
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to enlist the help of licensed chiropractors who staff a wellness center that's full of solutions. They help people of all shapes and sizes find natural solutions without prescription pain pills or surgery.
When you come in, your chiropractor will want to hear about your tight aching shoulders. After reviewing your lifestyle, health history, and posture, a gentle targeted spinal adjustment might ease the aches and pain and loosen up your whole body. Many people also find that they sleep better, have more energy and think more clearly.
When the spine is healthy everything works better too. The spine keeps us mobile and the central nervous system inside coordinates our brain-to-body communication.
As you evaluate your results, you might choose weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to keep the benefits flowing. You may want to use your chiropractor as your fitness coach as you look for the best routines for you and your whole family. Teens often need help with home workstations and seniors benefit from help with arthritis or sciatica pain.
Stretches for Shoulder Relief
At the same time, your chiropractor might suggest corrective stretches like this one from WellAndGood.com.
They suggest you spend one minute in this yoga pose that reverses shoulder tension. See what you think of this reclined reverse palm interlace from Chloe Kernaghan.
- Place palms together in prayer clasp
- Position palms behind your back where it is comfortable
- Lie down on your hands
- Your shoulder hunch tension may leave
- You may breathe better as your chest expands
- Gravity releases the shoulder blades and widens collarbones
If this stretch works for you, keep trying more to find stretches for each part of your body.
