Simple shoulder stretching exercises to improve range of motion
Recovering from a shoulder injury can be immensely frustrating. We utilize the muscles in our shoulders in a thousand small ways throughout the day, and loss of range of motion can mean a loss of ability to participate in regular everyday activities. However, even those who haven’t been injured can benefit from simple shoulder stretching exercises to help increase comfort while working out and minimize the chance of an injury in the future.
Prisma Health physical therapist Jessica Williamson provides instruction and guidance to help you properly stretch and increase the range of motion in your shoulders. These stretches can be used for injury or surgical recovery or simply added to a daily stretch routine.
These quick and easy stretches can be performed in the gym, at home or even in the office, wherever you feel most comfortable.
