Torn Rotator Cuff Exercises
Torn rotator cuff exercises are essential to the successful treatment of rotator cuff tears.
This is something I firmly believe and it is backed up with a huge weight of evidence.
Like you, I have suffered from a torn rotator cuff. In writing this I have used my own experience and the experiences of so many others just like you.
I have come to understand how and why rotator cuff exercise is crucial is to making a complete recovery. I understand that because torn rotator cuff exercises are many and varied this can make them a daunting prospect.
I hope that I can help to remove some of the mystery and I have tried to keep it simple and give it some sort of structure.
The single most important thing for you to grasp about torn rotator cuff exercises is that they are for absolutely everyone. If you have a torn rotator cuff then rotator cuff exercise IS FOR YOU!

Have a look at this picture – can you really not do this?
What is the point of torn rotator cuff exercises?
Torn rotator cuff exercises are important for four major reasons.
Rotator cuff exercise protocol
In this instance “protocol” simply means program. After any rotator cuff tear, or surgical repair of a tear, there should be a structured approach to recovery. For me there are three distinct phases
There are pages on the website dedicated to each phase.
Essentially however the physical therapy period is a few weeks of low resistance, isometric and assisted exercises aimed at increasing range of movement.
Rehab exercises aim to build on that using elastic, small weights and rotator cuff stretches.
The final strengthening phase comprises of the same exercises but with increased repetitions and weights (still no more than a few pounds max).
Don’t forget the rotator cuff muscles, are small. They are the instigators of arm movement only. The larger surrounding muscles take over to do the real strength work. Using too large weights will mean the rotator cuff muscles are not being worked; this is counter productive.
