#318 Shake loose

Dogs may or may not be man's best friend, but they sure have some smart tricks. It took me quite a while living with chronic muscle and joint pain before I found out that a quick and invigorating shake all over actually provided some immediate pain relief. Just standing up and shaking my arms and legs as well as I can really stimulates circulation and is great as a physical pain distraction - activating other neural pathways and reducing pain. If you're too weak to do this standing up, you can sit on a chair and shake one part of your body at a time, it works just as well.

And for some shakin' musical inspiration, play an old Elvis classic...
