Shoulder Exercises

Often, an orthopaedic surgeon will prescribe a series of exercises aimed at strengthening the shoulder muscles. Here are some easy shoulder exercises that you can do to strengthen your shoulder muscles and prevent injuries.

Basic Shoulder Strengthening

Attach elastic tubing to a doorknob at home. Gently pull the elastic tubing toward your body. Hold for a count of five. Repeat five times with each arm. Perform twice a day.

Wall Push-Ups

Stand facing a wall with your hands on the wall and your feet shoulder-width apart. Slowly perform a push-up. Repeat five times. Hold for a count of five. Perform twice a day.

Shoulder Press-Ups

Sit upright in a chair with armrest, with your feet touching the floor. Use your arms to slowly rise off the chair. Hold for a count of five. Repeat five times. Perform twice a day.
