Top 3 Rotator Cuff Exercises

Some patients have requested this demo.

A few things to consider. 

1. SPEED - in the acute phase do this SLOWLY.  The movement is less a muscle exercise, more so neural retraining.  The idea is to make it difficult to do in a coordinated fashion.  Initially you will notice jerking movements which with repetition become smooth.  This is thought to indicate better control and as a consequence the joint becomes less prone to reinjury.
All the best.
