Shoulder Stiffness

This term describes the tension, tenderness and restrictions felt over the shoulders. Muscular shoulder pain is often related to the position that one holds whilst at work. This can be desk bound or through manual labour. This tightness combines often with stress to give the ‘knots’ people often feel they have in their shoulders. The best treatment for this is massage, stretches and some manipulations to articulate joints beneath.
