Pendulum Exercises

The aim of Pendulum exercises is to mobilize the shoulder joint in the early stages of rehabilitation.

Teaching Points

  • The athlete stands as shown with the bodyweight resting on the uninjured shoulder.
  • Keeping the injured shoulder relaxed, bodyweight is shifted between the feet to initiate a back and forwards motion.
  • Standing with the feet level and at shoulder width, transferring the weight from right to left can be used to increase side to side movement.
