Exercising Around An Injury And Working On The Basics

I am very much a believer in continuing to exercise and using exercise as a major component of assisting in getting over an injury due to both the mental and physical benefits that it provides to the client.  In the images below you will see an example of some exercises that we have prescribed for a client who has shoulder pain that is aggravated by movements above 90 degrees and allows us to address some mobility and general low load strength/endurance on the scapular and rotator cuff muscles. Avoiding exercise altogether may certainly be required at certain times, but if we can work around it and maintain some level of conditioning, I feel this will ultimately serve the client best in the long term.
