Ouch! Rounded shoulders


The shoulder joint is mobile but less stable. Prolonged use of gadgets and long work hours affect the shoulders. In addition, improper postures lead to rounded shoulders, which may result in pain on the shoulders, arm and neck. Here is a simple technique that can help relieve rounded shoulders.


☞ Stand upright at an arm’s distance from the wall

☞ Raise the left hand up to the level of the shoulders (if this is difficult or painful, reduce the height)

☞ Stretch the left arm and rest the palm on the wall

☞ Press the palm firmly against the wall

☞ Gently turn to the right as much as possible

☞ Keep the feet closer, legs straight and trunk upright

☞ Tighten the muscles of the left arm and the shoulders

☞ As you inhale slowly, the abdominal cavity should expand

☞ As you exhale slowly, the abdominal cavity should contract

☞ Stay for about 30 to 60 seconds

☞ Slowly turn sideways and release the left arm

☞ Change side and repeat
