How to Cure Your Shoulder (Tendonitis, Bursitis, Impingement)

A complete guide of the home therapy required to treat and heal a painful shoulder due to impingement related bursitis and tendonitis. Fit himself suffered terribly from an inflamed shoulder for 6 months. At the very first signs of pain, he began resting his shoulder, modifying his workout, and applying ice every day. Unfortunately things got worse. He finally went to a doctor who gave a cortisone shot and a series of rotator cuff exercises. Unfortunatly, things continued to deteriorate. Eventually, Fit was in constant pain and lost almost all motion of his shoulder. Finally, Fit visited a physical therapist who specialized in Sports Injuries. Fit was told he had an impinged shoulder which was causing inflammation of his bursa and tendons. The gap in between his shoulder bone and arm bone had narrowed and was rubbing on his tendons and bursa. This video is the treatment prescribed to Fit to help restructure his shoulder and open the gap between the bones. The treatment consisted of performing three different stretches (shoulder stretch, chest stretch, and a cross arm stretch) These stretches were do be done for 30 seconds and 4 rounds. This was to be repeated 4-5 times a day. Also, strengthening exercises were prescribed to help the back muscle pull the shoulders back to their normal position. These exercises were to be done for 2 rounds of 20 reps twice daily. They consisted of straight arm press and variations of back flies. 6 months later, Fit has regained almost full range of motion.
