                                                                       ages, especially those who don't regularly do

                                                                       are often neglected though shoulder muscles
                                                                       always bear the burden of carrying heavy
                                                                       bags or backpacks. The pain is a sign that
                                                                       your shoulders are enduring more stress over
what they can actually carry out.

        Shoulder workouts are the best solutions to ease the pain that our shoulder muscles go through. Aside
from that, workout also strengthens the muscles, preparing them to deal with our everyday tasks which require
shoulder movements. With strong shoulder muscles, the common shoulder injuries may also be prevented as
shoulders are the most critical area in our body.




        One of the best forms of shoulder exercises is yoga. Cat Pose is one of the simplest and best poses for
shoulder pain. Also called Cat-Cow Pose, this mild stretching exercise massages the shoulders and fortifies back
and abdominal muscles at the same time. It is ideal to perform this stance for 10 to 15 times per day.

          Another helpful shoulder workout is the Downward Facing Dog Pose, which can instantly be done after
the Cat Pose. When performed altogether, you will experience a gentle stretch to your whole body and release
stress from all areas, specifically in the shoulders. With this kind of yoga, most of the weight is placed in the upper
part of your body which is definitely good for your shoulders.
         Exploring the shoulder's range of motion is another proven shoulder pain activity. To do it, simply stand
facing a table or chair. Bend at the waist and allow your arms and shoulders hang down the floor. To ensure
balance, one arm can hold on to the table or chair. Start drawing small circles in the air with the hanging arm.
While doing it, move the arm in larger and larger circles. Do this stance 5 to 10 times daily. Warning: If you felt
major discomfort, discontinue the exercise and try doing it at another time.

         You can also perform shoulder pain exercises which strengthen the rotator cuff. You can do this through
the use of strength band or rubber tubing. First, stand sideways to a closed door, with the injured shoulder facing
the door. Bind the strength band to the door knob. Locking your elbows 90 degrees at your hips, pull the tube
across your stomach. Start off with 10 repetitions. As your shoulder pain reduces, you may increase the number of
sets and repetitions.

         Shoulder relief is just within your reach as long as you are well-educated and aware of the proper
shoulder pain workouts to perform. Check out the other shoulder pain exercises that will keep your shoulders
