Physical Therapy in Grapevine for Shoulder

Hold one end of the resistance band in your left hand, at your left hip with the other end of the resistance band in your right hand.

Position your shoulder at 90° in front of you, and the top of the upper arm bone centred in the shoulder socket. 

With your elbow vey slightly bent, begin the draw the letters of the alphabet in the air with your arm in front of you.  Stop when you feel fatigue at the shoulder or you lose control of the position of your shoulder.  Make note of the letter your reach prior to fatigue.  This exercise can also be done with your right arm extended up overhead or at 90° out to the side. Rest between sets. Repeat as advised by a Physical Therapist at Grapevine Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine.
