Release stress and tension and relieve neck, shoulder, and upper back pain with this quick 10-minute yoga session…
As we discussed earlier this week, yoga can be a great form of exercise for those recovering from an injury or accident. Not only can yoga help restore flexibility and strength during rehabilitation, but it can also help your body become more resistant to injury in the first place.
This week’s short 10-minute yoga class focuses on the neck, shoulders, and upper back – areas that are often under stress and tension from everyday activities. This therapeutic session will help relieve neck tension, shoulder and upper back pain, and poor posture. It can also help to reduce inflammation, relieve discomfort, and increase range of motion throughout the upper body.
This is a good one to do if you spend a lot of time sitting or hunched over a computer. Releasing tension and stress in these areas will help increase blood flow and maintain mobility, as well as reduce the risk of injury in this often-overstressed area.
Note: If you are currently recovering from an injury to this area, be sure to consult with your doctor first to make sure yoga is a suitable form of exercise for you. Always listen to your body and use common sense when performing any exercise! If something hurts, back off, modify, or stop the exercise.
