What once used to be an older person's complaint, is now affecting our younger generation. We spend a lot of our time in front of a computer and on our phone and that is one of the main reason our neck and shoulders are suffering.
Other than that, what do you do most of the day? Are you driving, riding a bike, swimming, working in a lab, providing massage treatments? Lots of us spend a big amount of our time with our shoulders rounded forward and it is really important to be aware of it and start working on preventing pain, injuries to happen. Self-massage is a great way of doing so.
Here is a great article on neck and shoulder pain that explains anatomy, causes of neck pain, what can be used to alleviate the pain and what can be done to prevent it from coming back.
I also love these videos. They help me stay out of pain. Try these exercises, they feel good and could keep you out of pain too.
