Shoulder pain can really slow someone down, and when stiffness or tightness is involved people can have a difficult time with their every day activities. Here are some simple stretches to get your shoulder loosened up. They can be used if you have been diagnosed with shoulder tendonitis, bursitis, adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, or if you are recovering from a surgery.

The first stretches are called pendulums. Use a chair or counter top, and lean over so your arm hangs down towards the ground. Move your body, not your arm in circles so your arm swings around like a pendulum. You can also rock front to back and side to side. Add a small weight in your hand to open up the joint space while doing these stretches. The next stretches you will need to use a table or counter top. This is an active assisted stretch, which means you are moving the arm now, but the table will support the weight. You will slide your arm forward and lean your body forward until you feel a stretch. You can also move it at an angle and circles.

Finally, you can use a wall to stretch your shoulder. Again, the wall will support your arm while you move it. You can slide it upward and lean into the wall until you feel a stretch, and then you can try circles as well. Then you can turn sideways to get your abduction stretch

Virginia Edwards says:

Hi Dr. Jo….how heavy is that plate weight that you are using for the pendulum swings….2.5? Or should I go more to open that shoulder socket up. I'm trying to heal my rotator cuff tear. Is there a website where I can buy one? Thank you!

I've been dealing with arthritis pain for years. Watched a lot of helpful videos but you are the best. Started watching you 1 week ago when the carpal tunnel pain became unbearable and I couldn't move my fingers anymore. As you can see I can type again. Injured my shoulder swimming. Saw this video the first time today and it's already helping. Keep up the good work and God bless!

Dwone Johnson says:

Michael Lutz says:

Love you doctor Jo!!!

Stephen Guillen says:

I truly appreciate your time and effort. I can barely lift my right arm at the moment. The exercises are painful, but I feel a lot better after I've warmed up. I'm moving very slowly, keeping my movements small. Thanks for the video.

Goran Seretin says:

Thank you very much, Madam, I hope it will work!

cathy jones says:

should i work thru the pain if it hurts while doing these exercises

loushka128 says:

I'm 3 months into supraspinatus tendonosis and it still flares when I do a pushup or pullup. The area also hurts (dull pain, like a bruise) when I push my fingers in there at the joint in the front of the shoulder. Are the table excercises here appropriate or do they contribute to tightening the subacromial space , leading to compression of the tendon and therefore further fraying?

Daryl Daryl Daryl Daryl says:

omg thank you so much
