STOP Torturing Your Rotator Cuff (Do This Instead)
STOP Torturing Your Rotator Cuff (Do This Instead)Rotator cuff injuries are all too common. And often when a muscle gets injured we blame it for being weak. So in our attempts to recovery we include a ton of moves to work and strengthen those muscles. But what if this extra strengthening work is actually holding you back?What if these exercises are actually perpetuating the issues long-term instead of addressing the true culprit of the problem?Because so often muscles, like our rotator cuff, become injured because they are actually OVERWORKED and OVERUSED.These smaller, weaker muscles end up overstrained and overworked because of joint mobility restrictions and other muscles not pulling their weight.That’s why rotator cuff injuries especially are becoming more and more common.That’s why a proper recovery and mobility program can’t just focus on rotator cuff strengthening moves. It actually needs to focus on your thoracic, scapular and shoulder mobility as well as proper engagement of the larger muscles of your upper back as well as your serratus anterior.
