Exercise Suggestions for Frozen Shoulder


Question

My client has frozen shoulder due to using computers all day. Do you have any stretches and exercises suggestions for her?

Answer

We recommend you consult these two articles on the web site for information that will assist with your client’s problem:

  1. Rounded Shoulder Syndrome by Lenny Parracino 
  2. Self Myofascial Release Techniques by Alan Russell

You should probably take an approach to exercise that first focuses on flexibility and then on stabilization followed by strength and eventually a form of power (depending on specific goals). Please search the Exercise & Flexibility Library for exercises on all of these forms of training.
