Do you have shoulder pain?  Does your shoulder click, snap or hurt with certain arm activities? Are you avoiding specific movements to prevent the pain? Are you wondering why it only hurts sometimes and confused because you don’t remember ever injuring it?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s likely that you are suffering from shoulder impingement. Before you run to the MD for a drug, injection or an expensive MRI, try these 3 easy exercises.

Mountain Pose

External Rotaton

Pec Minor Release

If you are unable to perform these comfortably without pain, you may be in an acute inflammatory phase and will require rest, ice and possibly anti-inflammatory medicine. Start introducing the Mountain Pose exercise and gradually return to the other 2 exercises when you can do them pain free.
