What things do you need to keep in mind with your exercise to not only make sure that your shoulder doesn’t get worse, but maybe start to nudge it in the direction of better, too?

1) Strengthen The Muscles That Control Your Scapula

Exercise Tip Number One If You Have Frozen Shoulder:  Start doing strengthening exercises for the muscles that control your scapula.  A lot of times, frozen shoulder can stem from an unstable scapula. So, find out ways from a local trainer or MAT® Specialist on how you can strengthen the muscles that control your scapula.

2) Connect With Your Local MAT® Specialist

Exercise Tip Number Two If You Have Frozen Shoulder:  Connect with your local Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT®) Specialist.  Muscle Activation Techniques® is designed to figure out where you have muscles that are not working well and improve the function of those muscles.  A lot of times, when a lot of muscles get really dysfunctional, we start to experience really big symptoms, such as frozen shoulder. By getting your muscles working better, it may help the bones of your shoulder start to move better, allowing you to have better range of motion and more supported and protected joints.

3) Utilize Isometric Exercises

Exercise Tip Number Three If You Have Frozen Shoulder:  Use isometrics when training your arm and shoulder. Isometric exercises are done by strengthening your muscles without moving, such as a plank or wall squat.  Isometrics can be great for helping your joints heal while still challenging your muscles to get stronger.
