Shoulder Range of Motion Exercises

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the human body. Because of this it is also the most unstable joint in the body. All ages can develop shoulder problems. Early treatment of problems is necessary for a good outcome. People react to shoulder pain by decreasing the movement of the joint. After a brief period of time, the shoulder can become "frozen". This is an almost complete loss of the ability to move the damaged shoulder. Following injuries your caregivers can give you instructions on exercises to keep your range of motion (ability to move your shoulder freely), or regain it if it has been lost.
