Shoulder Mobility Care Tips To Help You Move More Easily

Sworkit Wellness

Shoulder mobility issues can make lifting, pushing, pulling, opening doors, and performing a wide range of everyday arm movements of any size significantly more challenging than they used to be or should be. Fortunately, there are many simple shoulder workouts that can help you regain strength, flexibility, and overall mobility. What are some of the most common causes of shoulder mobility concerns? We discuss that below as well as how Sworkit’s shoulder mobility care workouts can help you boost your range of motion and overall shoulder flexibility!

Common Causes of Shoulder Mobility Issues 

Mobility problems can stem from a wide range of sources. That means understanding the cause of your specific issue is an important step in finding the most effective way to regain your range of motion. The goal is to build muscle strength while avoiding injuries. Natural muscle flexibility loss can be linked to aging and living a sedentary lifestyle. Additionally, shoulder injuries that do not heal properly can also make many types of shoulder movements more challenging.  

Reduced Muscle Flexibility 

Our muscles naturally lose their flexibility as we age. This is especially true if we do not take the initiative to exercise them regularly to keep them functioning. Muscles, as well as tendons and ligaments, can become stiff and incapable of passively stretching as much as they did when we were younger. As a result, we find it difficult to perform everyday movements. In addition, we increase the potential for injuries when we can no longer push certain motions as far as we instinctively feel we should be able to. 

Unresolved Shoulder Injuries 

Shoulders are prone to injuries. Heavy lifting is the common culprit. These strained muscles, tendons, or other injuries may never heal properly, especially if they are mostly left to heal on their own. You will find reduced ability to move as easily or as far as they once did. 

Sedentary Lifestyle 

Your muscles need to move regularly to stay limber. Living a mostly sedentary lifestyle can make it hard for them to function properly. Spending the majority of your day sitting at a computer or on your couch can cause your insufficiently used muscles to become stiff and lose their range of motion.
