Shoulder Mobility Exercises – Pendular Circles

This exercise assists in maintaining and increasing mobility in the initial stages of a shoulder injury such as a strain in the rotator cuff or cartilage called the labrum or in persistent stiff shoulder conditions and frozen shoulder. Start by holding onto something for support with your non affected side. In a bent over position, holding for support let the arm of the affected shoulder swing with momentum in a circular motion across the body in a clock wise or counter clock wise direction. Do this for 30 seconds for 3 sets 4-5 times per day.
