Shelton Sports and Spine | Shelton, CT Chiropractor | Dr. Jason Queiros | Sports Chiropractic
Purpose: To work the rhomboids and external muscles of the rotator cuff and to aid in scapular stability.
Instructions: Stand with a rolled up towel under your affected arm, set your shoulder, and hold a theraband with your arm across your body. Rotate your arm to about 90 degrees straight in front of you - keeping your shoulder stable. Return to the start. Do 3 sets of 10, giving yourself a rest between each set.
Common Errors: Not setting your shoulder first so it rounds forward. Prepare first! The towel helps reinforce keeping your elbow tucked against your body, and will fall if your elbow comes away.
