Shoulder Rotator cuff Exercises

Sandy from Logan Physiotherapy displays simple rotator cuff strengthening exercises using Theraband. Red Theraband is the typical colour that we would use at the clinic for these exercises, even when you are further into rehab. These are control based exercises and not a true strengthening exercise.

Keep your arm by your side and move your hand in and out, this actually creates a rotation force at your shoulder joint, hence the rotator cuff. External rotation is more difficult and requires more control and creates fatigue quicker. I have shown a progression of external rotation that is more difficult and may require a physio at the clinic to monitor to make sure you are using the correct technique.

Doing 20 of these in each direction 2-3 times per day is usually adequate.
