Rotator Cuff Isometric Exercises (External & Internal Rotation)
August 10, 2021
If you have shoulder pain, when you’re first starting to strengthen your shoulder you want to make sure you perform pain-free exercises.
For many people with shoulder pain, performing gentle rotator cuff isometrics is a great place to start.
Later on, as their strength is improving with these exercises, they can progress to more active strengthening (like using a resistance band or tubing).
In this video, I’ll demonstrate two simple-to-perform rotator cuff isometric exercises (external rotation and internal rotation).
Again, these two exercises are a great place to start if you’re experiencing shoulder pain and are looking to start activating your rotator cuff muscles without adding extra pain and inflammation.
I hope it helps!
