Rotator Cuff Strengthening for Long-Term Shoulder Health

Shoulder pain and injuries are not uncommon. This is especially true given lots of people are working at a computer and falling into some poor posture habits.

Rounded shoulders set a person up for injury. Then, suddenly you’re having pain when lifting something overhead, reaching into the back seat of the car, or pulling a gallon of milk out of the fridge.

But rotator cuff injuries aren’t exclusive to those with desk jobs. Gym goers also tend to ignore the important stabilizing rotator cuff muscles to focus on those bigger outer muscle groups. And loading a joint that has a weak foundation is not a winning recipe.

Today, we have for you a FULL VIDEO from our exercise playlist! We use this exercise for safe activation and strengthening of the external rotator component of the rotator cuff. Grab a resistance band or tube.

Our patients get 12-18 different exercises (3 per day) just like this that appear on their calendars. All the exercises are specific to their personal needs and rehab goals. Oh, and we also send them all the equipment.

At motivPT, we'll get you moving in a healthy way. If you have pain, weakness, or imbalance, consider booking with us for an online Physical Therapy routine customized to fit your individual needs. Book your free 15 minute consult to talk with Dr. Alex about your specific concerns and to learn more about how we work!
