TOP 3 Shoulder Joint Pain Relief Exercises

I got Donnalee to demonstrate.
#1 – No Money
You are in a nice posture. Your elbows are pressed against your side. You will then bring the hands out and really focusing on the rotation of the upper arm. We are isolating out the shoulder joint, working on the range of motion and stretching out the shoulder joint. Perform 1 set of 5 repetitions in a smooth and controlled movement with a good stop for a second or two at the end position. We are really working on range of motion and then light stretching.
#2 – Hand to Opposite Shoulder
Hand to Opposite Shoulder
Donnalee is reaching for the opposite shoulder blade. She will use the opposite hand to push the arm a little further backwards to really work on improving the flexibility in the shoulder joint. Hold the end position for 10 seconds then you can progress to 20 seconds. We are stretching all throughout the whole shoulder. The stretch happens in the shoulder joint and in the front of the shoulder. Perform 1 set of 2 repetitions on each side alternating back and forth. You will hold the end position for 10 seconds and then you can progress to 20 seconds. We are looking for a light stretch throughout the shoulders depending on where the tightness happens in your shoulders.
#3 – Vertical Hanging Exercise
Vertical Hanging Exercise
You need to find a door frame. You will reach up and grab the door frame. Your arms are straight over head and then you will drop your heels and weight. You are stretching throughout the shoulder joint. Perform 1 set of 5 repetitions holding the end position for 5 seconds and then you can progress on to 15 seconds. We are looking for a light stretch happening in the shoulder joint area.
If you are not able to reach all the way up, you can just reach to the point that you can. And then bend through the knees and the hips in order to get that stretch. If you can’t reach all the way up, you can reach for a lower point. If you have sloppy shoulder or dislocated shoulder, you should not do this exercise. If you have stiff or tight shoulders, this is a great exercise for you.
These top 3 shoulder joint pain relief exercises will definitely make you feel a lot better. Give them a go!
