Very good information, thanks for posting.
I had have a pain on my right shoulder for a few days. I think that is due to my large breast and the bras. I love to do wall push-ups and exercises similar to the ones mentioned in the article. They help ease the pain.
Thanks! I hope these will help. I will try.
with my problems with my sholder i think they can help me regain some of my motion in my shoulder . it was fulled with information . thank you very much .
Thanks for sharing
I would love to work my shoulders more, I know we do some of these things in the group fitness class that I go to, but I am not sure whether or not we are covering all bases.
when i froze my left shoulder then 2 yrs later had to have shoulder surgerty on right shoulder in theropy they would have my upper chert with my chin resting on a swiss ball then with dumbells doing flying L's just be carefull not to go to high or use too heavey of a dumbell.
Having had a frozen shoulder, I can praise these exercises - but, please check with your doctor if you are having any pain because doing these wrong can really do some damage.
I would love to try this but they say I need my right shoulder replace and I also have pain in my left one too. So is this good for me.
This corroborates what my OT friend has been saying all along. I used to swim a couple hours a week and I began to have some mild shoulder pain, and when I started to mix it up with some kickboxing, the pain went away. Whatever I was doing with the KB, it was supporting my RTs enough.
I have been struggling with left shoulder pain for almost 2 years now - I found the explanation to excersice above very tough to visualize and would sincerely appreciate a video demonstration. thanks so much
What if your shoulder hurts? Can you still do exercise? My left one is hurting and I'm afraid it might get worse.
This is a start. What I really need is something like a "Couch to 5k" program for my shoulders.
