Here you will find an instructional guide for home exercise that has been created to help you manage your chronic shoulder pain or chronic condition.
Try these exercises at least twice a day – after you wake up in the morning and before going to bed at night. It is important to note that you should have a conversation with your care provider before initiating a new physical activity regimen that may affect your condition.
Warmup: Before doing the following exercises, warm up with 5 to 10 minutes of low impact activity, like walking or riding a stationary bicycle.
Stretch: After the warm-up, do the stretching exercises before moving on to the strengthening exercises. When you have completed the strengthening exercises, repeat the stretching exercises to end the program.
Do not ignore pain: You should not feel pain during an exercise. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist if you have any pain while exercising.
Ask questions: If you are not sure how to do an exercise, or how often to do it, contact your doctor or physical therapist.
