Your shoulders, as the most mobile joint in your body, bear a lot of load during upper-body exercises and daily activities. They’re always working to keep your arms stable while you’re performing tasks such as lifting weights, carrying heavy groceries, or swimming. However, if you feel pain in your shoulders when you lift a weight overhead or while playing some sports such as tennis or swimming, it may be time to see your doctor. You may have shoulder impingement, which is treatable but requires close monitoring and possibly a few sessions with a physical therapist or a doctor. Muscle imbalances around the shoulder are almost always present in patients with shoulder impingement, resulting in abnormal biomechanics.
When you suffer from chronic back pain, pain relievers are not always enough. Why not try meditation that is a proven non-drug method, because several scientific works have verified its benefits against stress or pain, and in particular, back pain. Meditation is an active attitude that implies the awakening of the senses. We learn to extract ourselves from our emotions and sensations to achieve, over time, inner peace.
