Shoulder Sprains and Strains – One Handed Ball Roll Outs

Sitting on a chair, place the hand of your affected shoulder on the small cushy ball.

Reach forward with pressure on the ball from the hand until you reach the barrier and limitation of a stretching or pulling sensation that is short of pain. Hold it there for a second and return the hand back to the start position. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets 3 times per day.

This exercise is a progression of the two handed ball roll outs. It can help further improve the mobility of your stiff shoulder after you have strained or injured it.

If you’re unsure about the exercise or have uncertainty about where you’re at with your shoulder injury, book an appointment and have one of our Physiotherapists at either our North Burnaby or Vancouver locations to check things out.
