|Rotator Cuff Rehabilitation
|Basic rotator cuff rehabilitation addresses loss of mobility. The two main activities are finger walking and pendulum swings.
In finger walking, stand about 18 inches away from a wall, positioned so your torso is perpendicular to the wall. Reach your arm out to the side and touch the wall with the tips of your fingers. Your elbow should be bent slightly. Slowly walk your fingers up the wall as high as you can go. Walk your fingers slowly all the way down the wall and repeat 10 times. As you continue the exercise over days and weeks, your range of motion will improve.
In pendulum swings, sit at the edge of a hard chair and bend your torso forward, supporting your weight by activating your stomach muscles and resting your non-working arm on inner thigh. Let your working arm dangle to the side and, slowly and gently, begin to swing the arm in a small circle. The movement begins by a gentle swaying of your torso. Slowly increase the diameter of the circle to a maximum of about 18 inches. The whole routine should take about a minute.

I had pain in my lower back and shoulder area, after just a few trips of getting treatment from Dr. Barber, I began to feel much better. I am now pain free and I am enjoying working in my flower garden again and I just feel great! I had never been to a chiorpractor before. Pain free without the use of prescription drugs...It's GREAT! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
