I am going to tell you 3 ways to stop that shoulder pain that does not let you do your daily duties but first I feel that it is essential to tell you the possible causes of shoulder pain and I found that most of shoulder problem fall into 4 categories: fracture, arthritis, instability and tendon inflammation or tendon tear. I am not going to go over the categories in depth because I know that the most important part for you is to know how to eliminate the pain. Here are 3 ways to do it:

  1. Work on your range of motion: Draw circles in the air with your sore arm 5 to 10 times during the day.
  2. Rotator cuff strengthening: do external rotation exercises; reverse fly, high to low rows with bands.
  3. Upper body strengthening: when appropriate, add a general upper body weight lifting program. How convenient is ADAPT programming right??

Until next week!
