3 At-Home Exercises for Shoulder Injury Prevention

Rest = Rust

Research is showing us that the #1 way to keep your joints healthy is to move them through a full range of motion on a regular basis.  Movement is key to reducing muscle atrophy, maintaining flexibility and even helps keep the cartilage in your joints hydrated and healthy!

Most of our daily activities require our arms to be in front of our body — driving, cooking, working on the computer, holding babies etc.  To keep your shoulders healthy, you need to emphasize exercises with your arms overhead and pressing back — the opposite of your normal pattern.

Try out these preventative exercises at home at least 3-5x/wk, if not daily.  Within about a month, you should notice a positive change in your posture and shoulder strength!
