Kristen Bos | Doctor of Physical Therapy on Instagram: "Stubborn muscle tension on the inside tip of your shoulder blade?? ❌ 🔥   If this sounds like you, you could be experiencing an overuse of a muscle called your levator scapulae.   This muscle often becomes overworked and strained when we tend to elevate the shoulder and roll it forward.  To give this muscle a break we want to activate the muscle that does the opposite movement to offload the tension you are feeling.  As a physical therapist, I often see this is due to a weakness in the lower trapezius. The lower trapezius helps to ground the shoulder blade down and back and is great for decreasing tension in the mid back and neck.

I often have to remind myself to relax my shoulders; it seems I tense them unawarely.  ❤️ If you slouch when you’re working at a desk or watching television, you’ll probably end up with a stiff neck and/or tight shoulders. This exercise using the wall is an easy one to relax your neck and shoulders.  ❤️And you don’t even need a wall. Just bend your elbows and bring your fingertips to your shoulders, take a deep breath and as you exhale, roll your shoulders forward, then backwards as if you were drawing invisible circles with your elbows.   #wiser #proage #intentionalageing #olderwomen #wisdom #proageing #ageingdisgracefully #wildwomen #agepo Yoga, Shoulder Workout, Life Hacks, Fitness, Instagram, Tense Shoulders And Neck, Stretching Exercises, Shoulder Pain, Shoulder Massage
