Mike Reinold is back with another post on common myths in rehabilitation. This one is in regards to rotator cuff exercises. As we frequently see patients that have some dysfunction involving these muscles, it's important to be aware of how to maximize your treatment plan to provide high quality care. The FOUR MYTHS covered include:
-Rotator Cuff Exercises Are Not Functional
-You Get Enough Rotator Cuff Work With Other Exercises
-If You Use Heavy Weights Your Cuff Shuts Off and Larger Muscles Take Over
-Use The Same Weight During All Rotator Cuff Exercises
Be sure to check out Mike's post to understand his reasoning behind each myth! He also has a link on the page to his previous article on myths of scapular exercises.
