Many people suffer from shoulder pain, such as clicking and popping when they raise their arms. What is this, and how can you fix it? A physical therapist and experienced trainer describes how the shoulder and rotator cuff works, complete with visual aid. He also explains how to determine whether your shoulder is migrating out of the socket and how to work your muscles (rotator cuff) in order to fix it. The trainer and physical therapist then demonstrates how to work these muscles to bring about greater alignment and centering in order to reduce clicking, popping, grinding and shoulder pain. By standing against a wall and focusing on bringing your arms above your head while bringing your elbows together, you can prevent tears in the shoulder and damage that can sometimes be irreversible. This is a very common problem, but can be repaired through these exercises.
Key Points of Video:
- Take preventative measures to keep your rotator cuff from tearing
- The pain is caused by your humerus pushing against your joint which causes a pinching of your tendon
- These solutions are temporary, but if trained long enough can become a permanent solution
