Keeping your Shoulders in the best shape

Keeping your Shoulders in the best shape

“Shake off the weight of the world from your shoulders…”

A lyrics line from the song by One Direction, English-Irish Band 

A famous line goes, “Never carry a burden on your shoulder!” Your shoulders need to be strong. Physically, your shoulder is close to your brain and your heart. Its maintenance and care are much needed.

What is a shoulder?

The shoulder comprises three bone parts: your upper arm bone, your shoulder blade, and your collarbone. Keeping your shoulder muscles flexible can help you better in body manoeuvrability and overall physical fitness. Shoulder pain or injury can restrict you from fundamental body movements, where, for example, you cannot move or raise your arms, have a stiff neck, cannot turn your back, lifting goods becomes a challenge, doing basic stretching becomes tough or doing other such basic activities cannot be achieved.
