Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

Home / Patient Resources / Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy


On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.


The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.


The key to managing this condition is to place optimal load through the affected tendon to stimulate effective healing and build robustness. For this to be achieved, the exercises need to be pitched at a certain level which makes the tendon work hard and adapt, but does not cause irritation of symptoms. This is also accomplished through activity modification strategies and pacing, all of which your Physiotherapist can advise you on. For more information on this condition – click here.


The early programme is designed to maintain soft tissue flexibility and joint mobility in the symptomatic shoulder whilst also keeping the muscles active to avoid additional weakening. The intermediate plan adds more strengthening exercises through full & functional movement patterns, utilising a resistance band throughout. Lastly, the advanced programme – pitched at those who perform highly demanding physical activity including manual workers and sportspeople, places considerable load through the shoulder with complex exercises to maximise strength and resilience required for high-level activity.

Please Note

Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.


If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
