How To Prevent Shoulder Pain

Engage in low-impact exercise

  • Sustained low-impact exercise such as swimming can make a big difference in the incidence of shoulder injuries. These exercises are easy on your joints and strengthen the muscles to help stabilize the articulation.
  • Keep a healthy weight: Obesity is a chronic inflammatory state because the excess fatty tissue keeps releasing inflammatory cytokines into the blood. They contribute to tissue damage and precipitate inflammation in your joints and other body parts. So, even if obesity is not affecting your shoulders as it does to your knees, it is also important to maintain a healthy weight to keep inflammation at bay.
  • Do not overlook your own health: Visit your doctor every year, even if you don’t apparently have a health problem. These visits will detect any potential problem in your shoulders or elsewhere and help you find the best solutions according to each case.
