Instructions:

Foam rolling the rotator cuff requires careful positioning, as it can be uncomfortable if performed incorrectly. Firstly lie on your side with your knees bent. Place a foam roller under your arm just below the arm pit. Stretch your arm out on top with the palm facing upwards. Keeping your hips on the floor, use the strength through your legs to move the roller from just below your arm pit in to your upper arm. You can adjust your position to focus more toward the tendons at the back or front of the shoulder joint. Both will assist with regaining range of motion at this joint.

Tips: If you feel any tender spots, hold that position until you feel the pressure ease.
