Shoulder Pain and Rehabilitation Exercise Series

 In Upper Limb

This is one of our favourite shoulder pain and rehabilitation exercise series. You will need some Theraband/Theratubing.

Start with a lighter resistance band (red or green) and build into a heavier band (eg blue or black).

It is useful for a wide variety of conditions including:

-shoulder impingement (the end ‘overhead’ stage may be best left out if the shoulder impingement is in the early rehabilitation phase).

-rotator cuff tears or tendon pathology (tendonosis, tendonopathy)

-osteoarthritic shoulder conditions

-end stage post shoulder subluxation rehabilitation

The 3 parts of this series are also useful for the maintenance of shoulders that regularly do a lot of ‘work’. For example swimmers, triathletes, overhead sports athletes, or manual labourers.

Start with 10 repetitions and build up to 20 repetitions. Then aim to repeat 3 sets.
