Shoulder pain can be caused by muscle tightness and/or weakness. These shoulder stretches and exercises may help relieve shoulder pain.

Watch more shoulder stretches here:

The first two shoulder stretches are pendulums and table slides. These will help loosen up the shoulder joint and relieve pain and tightness.

Next are shoulder exercises with a resistive band. Shoulder external rotation and rows help strengthen the muscles around the shoulder to help stabilize it, which will also relieve shoulder pain.

Finally, there are serratus punches. These can be done without or with a resistive band.

Hi There. I have a question regarding shoulder pain. Left shoulder, It's causing pain in front bicep and down to elbow and now underneath bicep towards armpit. Would these excersies be beneficial for that? I sometimes feel like a squeezing cramp near armpit then it releases.

Thank you.

Nidhi Arya says:

Hi, i am having pain in my left shoulder, dont know why?? I think its due to sitting more and holding my phn or ipad most of the time. But the pain is bad. And the pain is causing some stiffness in the whole arm. I feel like stretching the shouldr and the arm to the back of my body as much as i can so i am doing it. But no relief. Can u suggest some excercise in particular for that. Also this pain starts going to my neck when it increases. Thank you.

You are like my favorite person of the week! I watch your videos in the morning and at night before going to bed. You know all my pain from sciatic nerve to the shoulder pain lol. The piriforma sciatic nerve is stuborn but it is getting better with your streches. 😃
