What to Do if You’re Experiencing Shoulder Stiffness

When you find yourself facing a major mobility issue, trust us… this is something which needs to be worked on carefully, and definitely not “powered through."

Mobility issues can happen as the result of injury, age, or just having been sedentary for a long time.

One of the most common mobility issues we hear about is an inability to get your arms over your head.

When this happens, it’s a telltale sign that your shoulder mobility isn’t great.

If you try to force the issue and push your arms up over your head anyway, you wind up putting undue pressure on your spine.

Needless to say, that leads to a whole host of other problems.
