Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy Heavy Loading

Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy Heavy Loading

Got nagging shoulder pain? ๏ฟฝโ€โ™‚๏ธThis is one of my go to exercises for any of my patients with dull chronic (symptoms >3 months) rotator cuff related pain. . Tissues need to be LOADED. And guess what, tendons in particular respond extremely well to load as ITS WHAT THEY ARE DESIGNED TO DO. Chronic tendinopathies basically describe a tendon that is too weak to handle the stresses placed on it. So whatโ€™s the answer to get out of pain? LOAD IT. . And Iโ€™m sorry, a little theraband resistance is NOT NEARLY ENOUGH to cause any real changes to the tendons physiological or build strength any tissue resilience. . To perform: 1๏ธโƒฃFind the absolute heaviest weight you can control for a 5 second eccentric phase. Youโ€™ll notice this weight is going to be MORE than what youโ€™re able to do concentrically. 2๏ธโƒฃUse both hands to rotate your shoulder out 3๏ธโƒฃSlowly control your hand coming back in with ONLY your injured side. This should be able a 5s rep. 4๏ธโƒฃRepeat 15times 5๏ธโƒฃ3 sets a day . Try it out!
