So, once you're doing the exercises in 'The Basics' blog posted previously, you can move onto these exercises. Again, it is important that you do not get pain with the exercises.

Internal/External rotation and Abduction with theraband.

External Rotation - Hold a theraband between your hands, elbows at 90°. Place a small rolled up towel or similar between your side and elbow as shown. Keep your unaffected arm still and rotate your affected arm outwards pulling the band, keeping elbow in. Slowly return to start. Here I am demonstrating an effected right shoulder.

Repeat 8-12 reps x 3, once every two days.
