Avoid shoulder injuries by strengthening your back muscles

Aug 22, 2019

A common Summer related injury – shoulder/neck pain!

During these Summer months, you might have found yourself partaking in more outdoor activities than you’re used to, such as playing ball games (cricket or rounders) on the beach or swimming in the sea, and as a result are you suffering with aches and pains in your shoulders?

Treatments

Here are some top physiotherapy strengthening exercises to improve your posture and to help strengthen the lower fibres of trapezius and back muscles which will help to counteract tightness in your pectorals and in turn reduce pain around your neck and shoulder areas.

Please be aware of your body and take advice from your GP before exercising or send an email to enquiries@physio-logical.net for advice and guidance.

Please do subscribe to our Physio-logical YouTube channel for more self help exercises and advice.

If you are suffering from shoulder and neck tension and want to find a Physio or Sports Therapist near you, then we have physiotherapysports therapy and sports massage clinics in Havant and Rowlands Castle, Hampshire.
