Here are some great exercises to do at home to help relieve your shoulder pain. The most effective is the side-lying external rotation, which activates the supraspinatus, subscapularis, infraspinatus and teres minor.
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Rotator Cuff injuries are very common injuries and they can persist for years unless treatment is properly addressed. Anyone can experience a rotator cuff tear, not just professional baseball and football athletes. Shoulder injuries are quite common, often the result of a quick blow to the shoulder joint or through years of common movements such as swinging a tennis racquet or golf club.
Shoulder Impingement – What is it?
When the tendons of your “Rotator Cuff” get pinched or squeezed between the head of the humerus (arm bone) and the acromion (end of your collar bone). Symptoms include:
- Possible “catching” sensation when the arm is lowered
- Generalized aching in the shoulders
- Sharp pain when the shoulder when reaching behind your back
- Pain when the arm is raised to the side of the body
Shoulder Pain Education
When the tendons of your “Rotator Cuff” get pinched or squeezed between the head of the humerus (arm bone) and the acromion (end of your collar bone).
Signs and Symptoms
The biceps muscle is located in the front of the upper arm. Tendons connect one end of the biceps muscle to the shoulder in two places. The other end of the muscle is connected by tendons near the elbow (attached to the radius). Tendinitis occurs when these tendons become inflamed or irritated. Injuries to the biceps tendons are commonly caused by repetitive overhead activity.
- Pain when the arm is overhead or bent.
- Localized tenderness or a burning sensation as the tendon passes over the groove in the upper arm bone.
- Occasionally, a snapping sound or sensation in the shoulder area.
