Step by Step

  1. If you need to improve your rotator cuff function due to a shoulder problem then this is an excellent exercise for early rehabilitation.
  2. It works the muscles in a closed chain position, which increases rotator cuff activity.
  3. It is a good exercise if you have restricted movement or significant pain but it is important to know that you will need to advance to other exercises as you improve.
  4. Sit in a good posture with palms resting on a surface by your sides.
  5. Gently lean sideways so the shoulder takes a little weight.
  6. Repeat with the other side
  7. Perform 10 repetitions for each side and repeat for 3 sets in total.

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).
