Stretching, exercise and posture are all elements that you can use to get your body back to where it should be and keep it there.
Moving in proper ways can help prevent future back pain from disc problems. For instance, always keep your body facing the task you’re doing. Avoid twisting or bending. Also, exercise regularly to help strengthen your back and stomach muscles.
Practice good posture and body movements. This means keeping your ears, shoulders, and hips in line whether you’re sitting or standing. Avoid twisting, prolonged sitting, and improper lifting. And ask your chiropractor about exercises to improve back strength and flexibility.
Exercise can help ease shoulder pain and increase range of motion (how far you can move your arm). To start, try the pendulum exercise. Lean on a table or sturdy chair. Bend your knees slightly, and let the injured arm hang limp and relaxed. Slowly swing the arm in small circles. Continue for 30 seconds, then change the direction of the circles.
The shoulder is the body’s most flexible joint. It allows a wide range of movements, such as reaching and throwing. Because it is used often, the shoulder is prone to injury. Muscles, tendons, or other parts of the shoulder can be torn, swollen, or irritated. This can cause shoulder pain and movement problems.
It is important to know the specific exercises to follow to correct such issues – the wrong exercise can actually make your condition worse!
