Stretch, Relax, Breathe: Rotator Cuff Exercises

I can't tell you how many people have rotator cuff problems, suffice to say, a lot! Your rotator cuff consists of four muscles around your shoulder both over and under your scapula (shoulder blade). These muscles allow you to move your arms around as well as creates stability.

Because of all the movements we create and absorb by our arms, and by extension our hands, its natural that our rotator cuff has to deal with a lot of strain, which if not dealt with, leads to aches and pains. Usually we tend to live with ongoing "dull" and sometimes acute pain. So guess what we're going to work on?

I impinged my rotator cuff

I impinged my rotator cuff years ago. Couldn't lift my arm higher than my waist without pain. The physical therapist I saw taught me to stretch my shoulder behind my back like I can see in the screenshot above. Hurts like a SOB when I do it but feels so good after.
