Exercises to Combat Shoulder Pain
Keeping your thumbs pointed toward your little toes, lift your arms to waist level and slightly forward, never higher than your shoulders.
Lower your arms slowly in a controlled fashion. Repeat 5 – 15 times and relax.
Stand sideways to the door. With your arm against your side and your elbow in an “L” shape (90-degrees), rotate your arm across your chest. Return to the starting position slowly and in a controlled manner.
Repeat the stretch 5 – 15 times and then relax.
Grasp a light hand weight (or a tin of soup) out in front of you. Bend your elbow into an “L” shape (90-degrees), keeping your upper-arm and elbow firmly against your side.
Keeping your wrist straight, slowly lift the weight until your forearm is parallel to the floor, then slowly lower the weigh.
Repeat 5 – 15 times and then relax.
