Watch “Shoulder exercises and stretches” on YouTube

Now that we stretched the area let’s strengthen it to gain stability. All the exercises I show you in this video should be done slow and controlled with the focus being on stability as well as posture. I highly recommend doing the stretches and exercises in front of a mirror so you can ensure that you are standing up straight, your core muscles are activated, and you are in a good alignment. If something doesn’t feel good, decrease the tension on the Thera-Band and move in a smaller range of motion.

Take note that if you have a full muscle tear or a broken bone, these exercises would not be recommended. Please make sure you have guidance from a healthcare professional when working on recovering from a tear or broken bone.
