3. Self Stretch Exercise / Head, Neck and Shoulder Pain
Regardless of age and occupation, neck and shoulder pain is a common problem. The elderly usually blames the cause of shoulder and neck pain on “joint degeneration” whereas young people think it is an unavoidable “overuse injury” resulted from work.
Neck and shoulder pain seemed to be a never-ending nightmare that can only be relieved by massage, heat and painkillers, praying the condition will stay as it is; not getting worse. Many patients would have tried multiple remedies but with nil long lasting relief. The core problem is these patients receive treatments passively; they don’t actively prevent the problem themselves.
