Neck and Shoulder Exercises for Seniors

Neck and Shoulder exercises are a fantastic exercise for seniors and older adults, and they are essential to include in your exercise program. If you are seeking a way to reduce neck pain and stiffness, then gentle neck and shoulder stretching may be the solution for you.

Often, the neck and shoulder areas can be forgotten about or neglected, and it is vital to keep this area strong and healthy.

Neck and Shoulder exercises are included in each of Fitness4Fun’s weekly exercises. A lot of the body’s stress is located in the neck area and results in a lot of stiffness and tightness in the neck area, which can result in pain and discomfort.
