Shoulder Rehab Exercises
So not too long ago you took a nasty fall and hurt your shoulder....
Not to worry, just follow some of my exercises to rehab your shoulder.
These exercises can all be done right in your living room, the strength will return to your shoulder and the pain will eventually subside.
First of all you need to clear some space to move around, you will also need a light dumbbell such as 2 pounds and a resistance band.
These bands can be found at any major retailer or sporting goods store.
Now that you are ready to start, stand up straight with good posture, head up, back straight, and make sure your palms are flat at your sides.
We will call this the start position. Now take the sore arm and lift the straight arm in front of you. Do 5-10 repetitions.
Eventually you want to work your way up to doing this process with a light weight in hand.
However it is important to start slowly and work up to a comfortable level.
After you are finished with the front reps, return to your start position, and lift your arm at a 45 degree angle. Again repeat 5-10 times.
In the next exercise, begin from the start position and simply lift your arm above your head. I
f your shoulder is beginning to feel some pain, then take a break and breathe in slowly through your nose.
When you are ready for your next set of exercises, grab your resistance band and securely step on one end of it while holding the other end in your hand.
Now with the resistance band, lift slowly away from your side until you feel pain. Repeat this process directly to the front as well.
Next, take the resistance band with two hands and hold it above your head with your arms vertical.
Slowly pull your arms apart until there is appropriate resistance.
Final Arm Stretch
After you are all finished with these exercises then lie out on the ground and stretch your arms out above your head and hold it for 10 seconds. Then bring your arm across your body and hold it there with your other arm for the same amount of time.
Make sure that you do these exercises every day to insure that your shoulder will regain strength.
