Shoulder video: How and why to strengthen your rotator cuff

This is the 3rd of 3 videos on the Shoulder.  Please watch the first 2 if you haven’t already (see the two previous posts).  As we age, our rotator cuff slowly starts to thin and in many seniors completely tears making overhead movements very difficult.  We all need to be on a rotator cuff strengthening program.  Watch the video below to add these simple exercises to your weekly program,

Good luck,

Shoulder video: Part 2 of 3 Diagnose your own shoulder

Here is part 2 of my shoulder series. In part 1, I explained the basics of the rotator cuff as I believe there is power in knowledge. The more you understand about how your body works, the better you are able to help it.

If you haven’t watched part 1, take a few minutes and watch part 1 (yesterday’s post). Now that we know a bit more about our shoulder anatomy, time to figure out what’s really going on. Watch part 2 to learn about some tests to help differentiate your shoulder issues. As always, please ask me any questions you may have and I do my best to answer all of them
