Stiff shoulder? Move it!

Don't just rest your stiff shoulder. Try to move the arm, even if it feels painful. It makes the healing faster.
Hold something heavy in your hand, a hand weight or a cast iron flying pan. Bend your body a little bit forward and swing your arm in several directions. Do this several times a day to keep the joint loose and flexible.



Here is something you can also do yourself:

1. First reliese the shoulder tension by tapping both shoulders with a fist several times back and forth. Then  lift  your arm. Grab the muscle behind your armpit with your thumb and forefinger and press the fingers together. Hold the pressure for a minute or two.




2. Strech your arm slowly in a horizontal position and support it on the back of the chair. You'll now find two small depressions between the tip of the shoulder and the triceps muscle. They are located at one inch from each other. Press on the points firmly with your thumb and forefinger. Hold ther pressure.

3. Feel with your finger between the upper arm and the pectoral muscle untill you find a tender spot between the armpit and the tip of the shoulder. Press on the point.

Press the points several times a day. Finish by massaging the shoulder and pressing all the tender points.
