Shoulder Impingement Pain: Rotator Cuff Muscle Stretch

Shoulder Impingement Pain: Rotator Cuff Muscle Stretch


To stretch out the right rotator cuff muscle,
place a non-stretchy strap with your left hand over your head and behind your back. Reach the right hand behind your back to grab
the strap. Reach as far up as you can towards your limit
but avoid tilting your shoulder forward. Stabilize the front of your right shoulder
by placing it against a corner or a door frame and step the left foot forward. Hold tightly with your right hand and pull
the strap upwards with your left. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds and repeat
for 3 sets. Doing this stretch daily can help increase
the mobility of your stiff shoulder if you’re experiencing shoulder impingement pain due
to a tight overuse Supraspinatus Rotator Cuff muscle. It’s also great to do as a warm down stretch
when it’s abnormally tight and stiff. If you have pain or if you’re unsure about
how to do the exercise, please consult with your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
