In this post and video we’ll discuss what your rotator cuff is, why it’s important, and share 5 of the best exercises to strengthen your rotator cuff.
As a physical therapist, shoulder pain is one of the most-common injuries that I treat. Your shoulder joint has to be very dynamic and mobile, but at the same time very strong and stable. This is a delicate balance that, if not maintained, can lead to pain and dysfunction.
