As you age, you’re likely to experience shoulder pain from a variety of common conditions. In many cases, shoulder pain exercises can help.
Shoulder pain or tightness is common, affecting 18 to 26 percent of adults. (Pubmed) Conditions that can cause shoulder pain include rotator cuff injuries and irritations, tendonitis, and shoulder impingement syndrome.
Shoulder pain can seriously limit your level of function, which is going to have a bad effect on your quality of life. You might have trouble reaching for things overhead, clasping your bra, or be forced to give up your favorite leisure activities like tennis or golf.
Fortunately, proper exercise can often alleviate shoulder pain by addressing the root causes, which often include muscle imbalances and weakness. At Rock Solid Fitness, our personalized full-body workouts always include specific shoulder exercises to prevent pain and dysfunction.
