To help your shoulders, do some exercises to work them the opposite way milking is. Hunching over to milk is really hard on our backs, so use a yoga bolster - or like me, roll a pillow into a 6-8 inch cylinder and duct tape it - and then lie on it with the pillow running from lower back to base ofneck. ( So pillow follows spine) This helps stretch your chest muscles and get your spine back into a neutral position after hunching. I do it every 2-3 hours for five minutes, plus leaning in doorways , laying on stomach and push up with arms but keep hips on ground to reverse bend your spine etc. it makes a big difference on shoulder and back from milking. Remember your posture and hopefully milk machine comes!!;
