Christmas shopping and neck/shoulder/back care
With Christmas just around the corner, how are you going to make sure you look after your neck, shoulders and back during the busy festive season?
Whether you are food shopping, buying gifts or even your everyday handbag; lifting and carrying heavy bags places additional stress on your shoulders, neck and back that can lead to an increased risk of injury.
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. It moves in a variety of directions, and therefore what we gain in mobility we give up in stability. With this in mind it is important that we protect this complex joint as we lift more over the Christmas period.
