Beginner shoulder exercises for fibromyalgia

If you have shoulder/neck pain and trigger points that are consistent with the fibromyalgia diagnosis, these exercises may be helpful for relieving the shoulder tension and increasing your overall comfort levels. Matt suffered with constant shoulder/neck tension and pain (among other areas) for years. These exercises have proven to be very helpful for relieving constant neck and shoulder tension – much more so than conventionally used neck stretches.

These are the exercises with sets and reps:

Scapular retraction — 3 sets x 10 reps
Shrugs — 3 sets x 10 reps
Arm circles — 10 – 40 reps
Side lateral raises — 3 sets x 10 reps
Dumbbell overhead press — 3 sets x 5-10 reps
