Shoulder Internal Rotation Strengthening with a Therapy Band - Subscapularis

Exercise Details

These exercises should only be performed after evaluation by a qualified medical professional and under their instruction. Should you experience pain or discomfort while doing an exercise, stop immediately.

Exercise Instructions

Attach one end of a therapy band to a door handle or bed post.

Sit comfortably in an upright position so that the door handle or bed post is on your right. Grasp the therapy band handle in your right hand. Your elbow is bent at a 90-degree angle and your thumb is on top. Place a towel between your right arm and right side, holding it in place by keeping your right elbow at your side.

Next, rotate your right forearm to the left [this is internal rotation]. You'll feel the muscular contraction across the top of your shoulder. Relax and return to the starting position.
