The list of exercises below includes strength-focused and specific exercises local to the shoulder and upper arm region but also includes exercises that strengthen the surrounding areas of the shoulders. These are just as beneficial since the body moves as a whole, not as individual compartments. Moreover, muscles often span through multiple regions and so maximal benefit to one region can be brought about by strengthening the whole muscle, not just one portion of it. Strength work helps by making the muscles, joints, and nerves resilient to tension/fatigue and injury, preventing disorders.
Osteopaths are highly trained and experienced when it comes to identifying the causes of and diagnosing shoulder and upper arm issues, as well as reducing pain and recurrence.
