IMG Physical Therapy 805 N. Richmond St., Suite 103 Fleetwood, PA 19522 610-944-8140 Chris Gordos, DPT Center Manager Eric Parrish, MPT Staff Therapist Shoulder Stretching and Strengthening Home Exercise Sheet Rehabilitation of the shoulder may take an extended period of time. A loss of strength, range of motion, and use is common after an injury or surgery. Your strength, range of motion, and use of the shouldercanbe regained. It may become frustrating at times, but you canbe successfulwith hard work, patience, and listening to your body. When you are exercising on your own athome there are some things to remember.... * Any specific exercise that causes pain, especially sharp knife like pain,is hindering the healing process for your injury and should be modified or discontinued until you notify your therapist. * Increased swelling after exercise indicatesthat the exercise may be too difficult or it is not being done correctly. Be sure to ice that area of swelling. Re-injuries during the rehabilitation process will slow your progress. If you get recurring pain either lower the resistance; lower the number of sets or repetitions; or reduce the rangeof motion to avoid the area of pain. * You should experience muscle soreness, dull ache, fatigue, and stretching sensations,but the exercises should not increase the pain or swelling. * When in doubt about how much weight to use for exercises, guess low. It is safer and easier to add weight than to hurt your self with too much weight. * Consult your Physician or Physical Therapist if any problems arise or if you have any questions regarding an exercise. It is better to make sure that you are doing an exercise correctly than to cause further injury by doing an exercise incorrectly. These exercises are to be done 1 time per day OR 3 to 5 days per week. **Perform 2 sets of 15 repetitions for strengthening exercises** **Stretch for 3-10repetitions holding 10-30 seconds each time.** Ice for 15 minutes after exercise and at the end of the day. Do not ice before exercising. STRETCHES HOLD FOR 15-30 SECONDS. REPEAT 5-15 TIMES. PERFORM DAILY PROMshld fix supine self ^AROM shld Hx supine w/cane • Lie on back. ..
