Rotator Cuff Strengthening Exercises

Rotator Cuff Muscles

The rotator cuff is a bundle of muscles around the shoulder that provide strength and stability during movement. The muscles arise from the shoulder blade over the back of the shoulder blade and connect to the head of the humerus, the large bone between your shoulder and elbow.

Injuries to the rotator cuff can occur at any age. In younger people, it is commonly due to trauma or comes from overuse with overhead activities. Some terms that are commonly used with the rotator cuff is tears, tendinitis, tendinopathy and impingement. Rotator cuff problems are often diagnosed with the help of ultrasound investigations along with a physiotherapy assessment.

During this video, Ellen is going to show you a simple rotator cuff strengthening exercise using theraband.
