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.
For the early programme, the focus is maintaining soft tissue flexibility in the shoulder joint and shoulder region, whilst increasing rotator cuff strength through movement. The intermediate plan comprises of exercises to improve global strength, rotator cuff strength and scapular (shoulder blade) stability. Lastly, the advanced programme consists of high level strength and stability exercises which are suitable for those requiring high levels of physical strength including manual workers and overhead athletes.
The exercise plans on this page are suitable for several different shoulder conditions, for more information click the links below:
We also provide general information on shoulder pain which may also be useful with explanations for other shoulder conditions, how Physiotherapy can help and other management strategies. Please click here.
Please click here to be re-directed to our YouTube channel playlist for video demonstrations of each exercise recommended for shoulder strength & stability. Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
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.
