Don’t Shrug It Off: Save Your Shoulders!

Have you ever stopped for a moment to think about how much you use your shoulders? As long as you’re upright, it’s almost like they are in constant motion. Paragon Orthopedic Center would like you to consider the stretches that could prevent injuries and hopefully put off shoulder issues that come with overuse. Stretching provides flexibility, increases your range of motion, reduces the chance of injury, and can improve your posture. Please note that if you have pain, you are not stretching correctly, or there is possibly another issue within your shoulder. Stretches should be gentle and sustained. Paragon Orthopedic Center is here for you for your shoulder needs, if you have concerns about your shoulders. Check out these helpful shoulder stretches and tips with photos from Harvard Health:
