Rotator Cuff Stretch

If you are in a sport that requires a throwing or swinging motion like baseball, softball, lacrosse or tennis then you need to regularly stretch and condition your rotator cuff....

1. Stand with your arm out and your forearm pointing 90 degrees.

2. Put a stick in your hand and behind your elbow. With your other hand, pull the bottom of the broom stick forward.

This may sound simple but it is a very important stretch for your rotator cuff. You also need to strengthen and stabilize the rotator cuff with strength exercises. Resistance band exercises and light dumbbell exercises work well for the rotator cuff.

Avoiding or lessening the risk of injury is a major part of sports fitness training!
