Lying Flexion Exercise for Injured Rotator Cuff

If you’ve recently suffered a rotator cuff injury, range of motion exercises can help accelerate and increase blood flow to your injured muscles, speed healing and help to increase the motion in the affected joint.

Typically, exercises involving the use of a broomstick involve incorporating high repetition counts without the use of added weight for resistance. If you perform the lying flexion exercise while you are standing, it will increase shoulder strength.

Exercises performed with the use of a broomstick can be very effective for increasing range of motion in shoulder injury patients, especially for rotator cuff sufferers. You will need a 3 to 4 foot lightweight broomstick, broomstick, yardstick or cane to perform this easy at home flexion exercise.

It’s important that you refrain from performing any exercise that causes your shoulder pain to get worse. You may want to start out slowly and conservatively then progress as you become more used to the activity. As you become much stronger, you may attach extra weight to the broomstick (only recommended for high impact athletes). You can add weight one pound at a time as you can tolerate it. The weight will give added resistance for strengthening, and may be more helpful with end of range stretches with supine overhead range of motion and stretches.
