Best Shoulder Pain Relief Exercises | Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy


In this vide I’m going to show you the best exercise for acute shoulder pain with rotator cuff tendinopathy. Hi, and welcome back to physiotutors. Koltyn et al. from the year 2001 found that isometric exercises are able to reduce pain and they are therefore a great way to load the injured tendon early on. In case of the suspected superior cuff tendinopathy of the supraspinatus tendon press the back of your hand against the wall in the scapular plane, which is at approximately 30 degrees of horizontal abduction and then hold it for 15 to 30 seconds with strong intensity If you suspect a posterior superior cuff tendinopathy of the infraspinatus and teres minor tendon you want to do external rotation in neutral wall press This is done with the elbow flexed to 90 degrees, and then externally rotate against the wall or by resisting rotation with your other hand and then again hold it for 15 to 30 seconds with strong intensity Finally if you suspect an anterior superior cuff tendinopathy of the subscapularis tendon You want to do the belly press. To perform this exercise, place your hand against the belly in line with the elbow and then push for 15 to 30 seconds with strong intensity again. According to Hoeger-Bement et al in the year 2008 the best variables to achieve the maximal analgesic effect are high intensity contractions of 80% maximal voluntary contraction for sustained duration however, the experienced pain level should also be used as a guide and should not be higher than 4 or a 5 out of 10 These exercises can be done a couple of times throughout the day in sets of 3 to 5 if you want to know which part of the rotator cuff is affected make sure to watch our video on the full can test, the external rotation Lag sign and the lift off sign or check out any other shoulder rehab video on our channel At last make sure to subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already and check us out on various social media I will see you in the next video.
