Is your Newborn causing Shoulder Pain?

Do you suffer from shoulder pain? Watch this video today!. Daily, it’s nice to have “the posture talk.” It’s almost a simultaneous reaction from people to sit up straighter, pull their shoulders back, and look about six inches taller. We all know what good posture looks like, but why do nearly all fail to follow through? Countless studies, articles, and presentations are given each year on the importance of good posture. So why do we continue to slouch, hunch, and slide further down in our chairs?

Poor posture is almost always linked to the neck and back; however, the negative effects reach further than you think. There’s no doubt that poor sitting posture plays a huge role in protecting your neck and back, but the influence on the shoulder is often overlooked. Sitting in a slouched position causes the upper back to bend forward, ultimately changing the position of the shoulder blades as they tip forward and wrap outwards to accommodate a slouch. Over time a slouch will alter how our shoulder blades move.

Proper shoulder blade movement is critical to shoulder motion, strength, and function. Scapular humeral rhythm means that for every two degrees of shoulder movement, the shoulder blade contributes one degree of movement.

If you’re experiencing any shoulder pain, it’s a sign something is wrong.

It is critical for weightlifting enthusiasts to know that any pain in the shoulder is not normal, especially acute pain that occurs after a single lift. Shoulder pain, stiffness or weakness can make it difficult to carry out everyday tasks, like reaching for something on a high shelf, carrying your newborn, driving a car, or brushing your hair.

When in doubt, it’s always best to do three things:

1. Practice good posture

2. Stretch the chest wall and

3. Strengthen your mid back.

Next time you are sitting at your desk and catch yourself hunched over the keyboard, with your shoulders neighboring your ears take the time to sit back and straighten up. While maintaining good posture throughout an eight-hour workday is seemingly impossible, awareness is the first step. With each correction of posture, the body is able to “reset”. Good posture won’t happen overnight; however, practice makes perfect. Hopefully, you finish reading this sentence sitting up straight, with your shoulders back, and upper shoulders relaxed!
