Do you suffer from shoulder pain problems and want to do exercises when you have a shoulder injury? Since having a long-term problem with my shoulders I have been seeking ways to heal it and get back to doing shoulder exercises the way I want for a long time.
With the success of doing shoulder exercises when I was injured I really wanted to share how I was able to improve my exercises with everyone. First I learned from physiotherapists on how to actually heal the muscle and strengthen the weakened areas for quicker recovery.
Shoulder Exercises For Fixing Weaknesses
The shoulder exercises I used to help recover from my shoulder injury actually are very simple and can be done several times per week. This move in the picture below can be done at any cable machine you can find. These exercises are targeted on the rotator cuff, and the outer shoulder muscles that normally are very weak and need to strengthened. Try to do three sets of these exercises for fifteen repetitions, three times a week until your shoulder muscles feel stronger.
Exercise #1 (15 reps x 3 sets each arm)
Exercise #2 – (15 reps x 3 sets)
Icing After Every Workout
Since inflammation causes constant pain and muscle soreness it’s best to press some ice for at least ten too fifteen minutes on your shoulders after every workout. This allows the lactic acids, free radicals and inflammation to decrease significantly and helps sooth the pain or soreness even after your workouts.
Stretching Every Morning
Stretching or self massaging the problems areas helps to remove scare tissue and reduce muscle pain, easing joints for better movement. Normally it would be recommended to see a message therapist or physiotherapist, but self massaging can really help if you don’t have these options. Stretching exercises for your shoulders should also be done frequently enough to help speed up the recovery process.
Hopefully you get better shoulder workouts and have a speedy recovery everyone!
