This can be a simple and easy to follow lesson that will allow you to explore the many positions that your shoulder can be directed too. If you have a sore or ‘frozen’ shoulder this lesson will allow you to do minute movements (or to even just imagine the movements) to find some relief. Often when part of ourselves becomes injured, sore or inflamed we resist movement even more,
When the shoulder becomes immobilized in this way, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint — the joint capsule — thickens and contracts, losing its normal capacity to stretch. Trying to avoid the pain caused by moving the shoulder leads to further contraction of the capsule. Go slowly and allow this lesson to be the start of your movement recovery.
