Shoulder injuries are among the most common in golfers. Our shoulders are put into very stressful positions due to our body imbalances and daily life activities. With time, this can lead to pain and restrictions in mobility that negatively affect your golf swing by reducing your ability to rotate and get the club back.
Do you want to learn what exercises you can do to eliminate your shoulder pain and regain the mobility of your shoulder? Have you ever wondered why your shoulder pops and cracks when your workout? This week, Scott Miller, MPT from Miller Physical Therapy in Delray Beach, FL is going to be answering all your shoulder related questions.
What's up Silver Strong Family? Our new video comes from our sister company, Prime Health Management, and it's all about the rotator cuff muscles and how to properly stretch them to get them functioning properly. There are 4 different rotator cuff muscles. Three of those muscles (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor) are responsible for externally rotating your arm. The other rotator cuff muscle (Sub Scapularis) is responsible for internally rotating your arm. If you are a regular lifter or athlete, you more than likely have imbalances within these muscles and favor internal rotation. If this is the case stretching your external rotators may give you more problems down the road. You may need to focus on stretching your internal rotator (sub scapularis) while strengthening your external rotators to achieve better balance within your shoulders. If you are unsure which muscles to stretch and which ones to strengthen, consult your physical therapist or personal trainer before attempting these exercises.
