Hi this is Dana Ranahan at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy and today we’re going to look at minimizing shoulder and upper body injuries and neck pain sometimes.

If you’re working on trimming a plant, and look at how far away the plant is from me now, I’ll get my neck into a bad position and my arms out stretched. Your much better to tuck yourself in as close as you can to keep tight so that your arms can stay close to you, that way you can work on keeping your neck long, chin in and your shoulders in close to where close towards you is much better for you, much less rest of injury.
