Step by Step

  1. This is a good starting exercise for strengthening your shoulder. Research has found that it targets the subscapularis muscle, which is usually weak with shoulder injury.
  2. Therefore it is a great exercise for shoulder rehabilitation.
  3. Standing in a good posture with your elbow bent to 90 degrees and a towel being gently squeezed between your elbow and your hip.
  4. Rotate the arm to take your hand across your stomach and return back to the out to the side position slowly
  5. Repeat 10 times and repeat for 3 sets in total
  6. When it becomes easier add more tension to the band or get a harder band resistance and over time gradually increase this as long as your technique is correct.

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).
