3 Exercises for Shoulder Pain

  • 1
    Side Lying ER of Shoulder: This is a great exercise to help strengthen the posterior rotator cuff muscles that support and stabilize the shoulder joint.
  • 2
    Standing Horizontal Shoulder Abduction: Here we’re engaging bigger muscles while still activating some of the rotator cuff. The subscapularis, anterior deltoid, pectoralis major, teres major, and lats are engaged to some degree during this exercise.
  • 3
    Standing Banded Shoulder Flexion: The pectoralis major, coracobrachialis, biceps brachii, anterior fibers of deltoid are targeted here. This requires stabilization of the are not moving and supporting the band while the other arm is flexing.
