Because of the complexity of the shoulder joint, there are complex injuries and other issues that you could face. Shoulder injuries are often caused by repetitive, overhead movement, possibly even excessive movements. This is sometimes a result of housework, yard work, or sports, and can limit your shoulder flexibility. In addition, tight shoulders can occur with a lack of movement as well, which is why it is important that you get in the perfect amount of shoulder strengthening exercises to stay fit.
Shoulder Strengthening Exercises
To strengthen the shoulder and regain optimal shoulder flexibility, the following are some shoulder stretching techniques recommended by the medical experts at Medi-Dyne:
CoreStretch™ – The CoreStretch™ was originally designed for physical therapists to use in their offices, and provides a deep, effective stretch. While it works wonders for the back and spine, it offers a strengthening stretch to the shoulders as well.
StretchRite® – The StretchRite® is a safe way to improve shoulder flexibility and strength. With a non-elastic strap, users can perform the following shoulder stretching exercises:
- Shoulder/Chest Stretch
- General Shoulder Stretch
- Isolated Shoulder Stretch
- Shoulder Flexion Stretch
- Rotator Cuff Stretch
- Deltoid Stretch
Participating in these shoulder strengthening exercises is essential to gaining the best results in shoulder flexibility. Having flexible shoulders allows you to participate in more of your daily activities without feeling pain or discomfort. Some studies show that more flexibility is linked to a low risk of cardiovascular diseases as well. The good news is that shoulder stretching is easy to do and can be done on a daily basis, whether you’ve got a home gym or are in the office. What’s more is that before you begin a workout, you should always stretch to ensure that the risk of injury is much less. When your workout is done, stretch again. This will keep your muscles limber and your shoulders loose.
