If you sit all day slouched, hunched, or in bad posture, it’s likely ruining your shoulders.
Shoulder pain can appear suddenly, like in an instance of a fall.
However, for most, shoulder pain develops slowly and progresses over time. The slow progression is often associated with tightness and weakness that develops from poor posture.
What once only hurt in awkward positions, now begins to hurt from otherwise routine tasks.
That’s why good posture is more important than ever — particularly as many have shifted to more sedentary lifestyles during the pandemic.

The stretch demonstrated can help bad posture. It will help loosen the mid-back, open the chest, and free-up the shoulders.
