Best Exercises To Eliminate Shoulder Pain

As a physical therapist, one of the most common problems that I deal with in my clinic is shoulder pain. Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. It’s also one of the most functional. As such, there is a delicate balance that must exist between flexibility and strength. We’re not talking just any strength training, you have to be able to work the right muscles in the right way. 

If you ever taken part in regular exercise/strength training, chances are your shoulders have hurt at one point or another. Often times this pain develops not necessarily because you’re working out, but because of how you’re doing it. Today I wanted to share three key shoulder exercises that everyone should be doing to keep your shoulders healthy and strong and enable you to keep training for a long, long time.

We all like to train the “look-good/feel-good/sculpted-shoulders” muscles when we’re working out. We do lots of military presses and deltoid raises to get nice tone rotator cuffand definition in our shoulder muscles. However, we often neglect to strengthen the most important muscles of the shoulder complex – the rotator cuff. While these muscles aren’t going to necessarily get you noticed the next time you’re in your tank top, they are without-a-doubt the most important muscles to maintain healthy shoulder function.
