TIPS FOR PREVENTING SHOULDER BLADE PAIN

Treatment for your shoulder blade pain will depend on the cause and severity of your condition. Recovery time will vary from person to person. Below are tips to prevent shoulder blade pain:

  • Don’t lift heavy items. Heavy lifting can lead to injuries which could trigger pain between your shoulder blades. Avoid carrying heavy bags on one shoulder. If you do have to lift something be sure to bend your knees and try not to put too much pressure on your back.
  • Don’t sit for too long. Get up and stretch frequently when you are working at a computer or desk. This can help keep muscles loose. You can also try using a standing desk.
  • Adopt healthy habits. Be sure to eat whole foods, get seven enough sleep each night. A healthy lifestyle can help you feel more energetic and rested, which can help you manage pain.
