Next time you go for a walk, grab a pair of light weights and swing your straight arms as you walk. That’s just one way to strengthen your shoulders and keep them healthy. Dr. Richard Cautilli, Chairman of Orthopedics at St. Mary Medical Center also suggests swimming and gym activities where arms are placed above the head.

When putting the clean dishes back in the cupboard, put the heavy plates on a higher shelf, that will help those shoulders get stronger.
