Resistance Band External Rotation

Physical Therapy in Grapevine for Shoulder

Attach a resistance band to a firm support to the left of the body. 

Stand with your head and back erect and your shoulder lifted and chest open (“set” position), your right elbow bent to 90°, your arm at your side, and a towel roll between your right elbow and your body.

With the right arm turned in towards the stomach slightly, hold the resistance band in your right hand as you turn your arm and shoulder outwards towards the right. 

Be sure to maintain the bend in the elbow and don’t let the right shoulder drop at the end of range.  Slowly return to the start position. 

Breathe throughout the exercise. You should feel the muscles working in the back of the right shoulder after a few reps. Hold and repeat as advised by a Physical Therapist at Grapevine Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine.
