3 Steps to Help Eliminate Knots In the Shoulder


Modern work and technology has resulted in very poor posture for many of us. Sitting at a computer day and constantly looking down at our mobile devices cause postural muscles to thin and weaken.

Most dominant is the head being too far forward of the body. The constant load on the shoulders holding the weight of the head in this position causes the muscles to cease up. Muscle knots and trigger points form.

This can go on for years. The knots and pain on the top of the shoulders and between the shoulder blades can become a permanent feature of you.

'Normal Posture' For Many

  • Knots and burning in the shoulders are a result of improper head position.
  • Inability to hold head correctly results in thin and weak posture muscles (lats, and traps).
  • Overly tight muscles on front of neck (SCM and platisimus).
  • The shoulder blades cease to move correctly and the upper back become inflexible.

HERE ARE 3 STEPS TO HELP RELIEVE KNOTS

Do this when sitting at your desk. Pull your shoulders DOWN, LIFT your chin up and DROP your head back. Open and close your mouth. This stretches the muscles in the front of your neck and takes the load of your head off your shoulders.  

Stand against a wall.Arms about 8" from your sides, palms forward. Head, torso, sacrum and heels all touching the wall. This pulls your head back into a correct position and stretches your chest muscles. 

Slide your arms up the wall to shoulder height while maintaining contact on the wall with all the body parts.

Arms at shoulder height, squeeze the shoulder blades together. This allows the shoulder blades to rotate and eases tension in the rhomboid muscles. Repeat....
