Step by Step

  1. This exercise is a great exercise to your shoulder
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. This exercise is done with an exercise band for the resistance
  5. In standing, place one foot onto one end of an exercise band and take hold of the opposite end with your hand
  6. Your hand should be by your side with your elbow straight.
  7. At this point the band’s tension should be taken up.
  8. Make sure that your shoulder and spinal posture is good at this point and throughout the exercise.
  9. Now move your arm directly straight forwards and up as far as you can manage and control back down slowly to the start position
  10. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  11. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  12. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  13. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue
  14. You should perform 3-5 sets with no more than 30 second rests
  15. This session can be done 2-3 times per week

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
