Have you ever experienced pain after you hurt your shoulder or back after doing a workout? Perhaps your form wasn’t great while you were doing cross fit… or your shoulders were hunched up around your shoulders while you were doing downward facing dog (a yoga pose).
By the time your workout is done, you can feel a headache start to form as the pain shoots up from your shoulder to your neck to your head.
Massage and analgesics only go so far,
You try and massage or foam roll the knots out yourself, or you might even end up taking panadol or ibuprofen for the pain and treating the symptoms rather than the cause. But this only takes you so far.
It stops you exercising
Let’s face it shoulder pain is inconvenient. It makes it hard to concentrate if you are at work, and it can also stop you from doing exercise because you do not want to aggravate your injury.
The flow on effect.
So you end up inactive and grumpy because you can’t get out and do the things you love. Or you end up sitting or standing funny just trying to get comfortable waiting for things to improve, which throws off your posture and this can start to make other things hurt like your back or neck.
