Winter sports and your muscles

If you love snow and ice then you’re no stranger to the aches and pains that can accompany winter sports. Each sport uses specific muscles that typically get sore at the beginning of the season.  This soreness information can be used over the next few months to remind you what areas to stretch.

Pain between the shoulder blades

Wherever your arms go, your shoulder blades go.  Given that our arms only work well in front of our bodies, the resulting rounded shoulders and forward-straining neck causes muscles between the shoulder blades to stretch and strain. That’s the long story.  The short story is aching and stabbing  pain around and under our shoulder blades that often shoots into the neck or down the arm. Help is at hand. Self-treatment of painful muscles is easily achieved with a tennis ball against the wall. or a focused massage therapy treatment can release pain-causing trigger points and get you back to full functioning. ][
