If you are someone who spends a large part of their day hunched over a laptop, you are probably familiar with shoulder tension. No matter how often you remind yourself to sit up straight and maintain good posture, it's easy to forget. Poor posture leads to an imbalance in our muscles which means that they can't support the body properly. Luckily, this can be fixed by doing a set of effective exercises. Moreover, they can help you to reduce back pain, stop headaches, increase energy, and improve circulation and digestion.
Stiff, tight shoulders are one of the most common complaints among all people today-especially anyone who spends extended amounts of time slumped at a desk or sitting behind a steering wheel. Here are some exercises to help you relieve some of the stiffness and feel better.
