OK, real quick, as I’m off to shoot some more YouTube videos.
Today, I have a video and article for you on three exercises that will help alleviate your shoulder joint pain.

I got Donnalee to demonstrate.
#1 – No Money
Stand in a nice posture, with your elbows pressed against your side. Bring your hands outward, 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 one set of 5 repetitions in a smooth, controlled movement with a good stop for a second or two at the end. We are working on range of motion and then light stretching.
#2 – Hand to Opposite Shoulder
Reach for the opposite shoulder blade, using the opposite hand to push the arm backward a little further. 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 throughout the whole shoulder. The stretch happens in the shoulder joint and front of the shoulder.
Hand to Opposite Shoulder
Perform one set of 2 repetitions on each side, alternating back and forth. You will hold the end position for 10 seconds, progressing to 20 seconds. We are looking for a light stretch throughout the shoulder, depending on where the tightness happens in your shoulders.
#3 – Vertical Hanging Exercise
You need to find a door frame. Reach up and grab the door frame. Stretch your arms straight above your head, and then drop your heels and weight. You are stretching throughout the shoulder joint.
Vertical Hanging Exercise
Perform one set of 5 repetitions, holding the end position for 5 seconds and eventually progressing 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, reach to the highest point that you can. Bend through the knees and the hips to get that stretch. If you can’t reach all the way up, you can reach for a lower point. If you have shoulder instability or a dislocated shoulder, you should not do this exercise. If you have stiff or tight shoulders, this is a great exercise for you.
These top three shoulder joint pain relief exercises will make you feel a lot better. Give them a go.
