Fixing Shoulder Pain – Part 2

Shoulder Pain can be caused by many things. Always rule out serious conditions with your doctor. You can see a comprehensive listing here: Causes of Shoulder Pain.

In part 2 of Fixing Shoulder Pain we look at three exercises to help relieve shoulder pain. Perform these exercises daily for 3-4 weeks.

Exercise #1 – Shoulder Rolls

Step 1 – In a circular motion, pull your shoulders back. As a sequential and seperate motion pull shoulders down.

Step 2 – Relax shoulders then repeat step 1.

Step 3 – Do this 20 times.

Exercise #2 – Rotation Strengther

Step 1 – Using a band or similar device start with your arm a 90 degrees and pressed against your body. Set the resistance so there is 25% tension in the band at this point.

Step 3 – Repeat this movment for 3 sets of 15 repetitions.
