Have you been looking for exercises for relieving the pain under your left shoulder blade?The first thing you need to understand is that if you have a herniated or bulging disc, you are not alone! Around thirty five percent of people have a herniated disk at some point in their life. If you are looking for ways to relieve the pain, then there are a few things that you need to know about disc hernias.
The biggest cause of pain is weakness in the muscles around the area of the herniated disc. This can be caused by many different reasons and usually not due to a herniated disk. Things like sitting for extended periods of time (in an office or a car), straining when lifting something heavy, poor posture (where the shoulders slump and the body loses its proper alignment), having a bad posture (where the shoulders hang downwards and the upper back takes the strain from the neck), and sitting in one position for long periods of time can all contribute to poor posture.
Weak muscles are one of the main reasons that herniated discs occur in the first place so this is why strengthening these muscles is so important when it comes to relieving the pain under the shipectomy.
Strengthening the muscles that support the upper back and the shoulders will help take some of the load off the neck and shoulders so when the herniated disc occurs, it does not strain these muscles causing pain. One exercise that you can do is to lay flat on your back with both of your knees bent and with your feet flat on the floor. Then you simply bring each knee up to your chest and then arch your back as far as you can until your shoulder blades are almost touching. Repeat this exercise as many times as possible.
