DO SOMETHING ABOUT That Frozen Shoulder

Injuries are part and parcel of life although, if left untreated, can have seriously detrimental repercussions to our health.

Shoulder injuries in particular can be especially troublesome, affecting how we go about our daily lives, impacting our sleep and, if not addressed, potentially leading to serious injuries elsewhere such as in our neck and back.

A lot has changed over the past 18 months due to the global COVID-19 pandemic which has reshaped the way we live our lives. It has seen us deserting our offices to work from home, affording far more flexibility to our schedules, providing more time with family and eliminating the daily hassle and cost of commuting.

This has been a Catch-22 for many, however, which has seen an increase in ailments. Some have suffered from increased inactivity, being hunched over a laptop at home with bad posture and lack of relative movement resulting in aches, pains and subsequent injuries.

Conversely, many have re-evaluated their approach to health and well being and the uptake in various new indoor and outdoor exercise regimes and recreational pursuits has been significant. Whereas this, of course, is a healthier option than being slumped over the PC in a wholly inactive state, it has also initiated a spate of inevitable injuries.

Our shoulders are one of the most frequently used parts of our body comprising a highly complex joint system so when we experience pain or discomfort, it can be very much debilitating. Shoulder impingement and tendonitis are common amongst sports enthusiasts and gym disciples but can also occur from general day-to-day wear and tear and sometimes from seemingly nothing at all.

Fear not, however, as renowned pilates practitioner My Body My Pilates has the answer for anyone suffering with a troublesome shoulder injury. They are currently offering a 30 day Pilates Challenge to help restore health and well being during these turbulent times. And the best thing is it is free!

Subscribers to the 30 Day Pilates Challenge receive an email with a short instructional video which will allow them to focus on restoring themselves despite the challenges brought about by the Pandemic. This free 30 day Pilates Challenge is an invitation that is just too good to turn down!

Pilates is proven to be incredibly beneficial for people suffering from shoulder pain as it helps balance muscles around the shoulders to achieve stability and promote an effective range of movement while encouraging enhanced posture. It can increase joint support through improved strength in the core muscles of joints which can reduce pain and increase functionality.

You can also sign up for one of our classes at the My Body My Pilates studio in Tokyo and learn a range of specific routines and moves such as the wonderfully named cat stretch, snake bridge, spider arms, corkscrew, windshield wipe and jackknife, amongst others.

So, whether you are experiencing problems with your shoulders or just want to adopt a healthier approach to your daily life, book your Pilates class and enjoy a healthier lifestyle now with My Body My Pilates.
