Stand in a doorframe. Press your arms against the frame so that the front of your shoulders become increasingly stretched. Move your arms up and down the doorframe so that different parts of your muscles are stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Stand with your hands together behind your back. Draw your shoulder blades together (imagine trying to hold a pencil between your shoulder blades). Hold the position for 10 seconds and rest for 10 seconds before repeating.
Stand with the injured arm in front of your body. With the opposite hand, press the elbow of the injured arm towards the opposite shoulder, so that the upper part of the arm and the outer shoulder experiences increased stretching. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Stand and bounce a ball on the floor backwards and forwards from the injured to the good hand.
Lie on your stomach across a chair with both feet supported under a tabletop. Lift both hands from the floor and hold the position for 2 seconds. Support with your hands for 2 seconds and repeat the exercise 10 times in quick succession.
Support with both hands against a wall. Move slowly towards the wall and push away again. The exercise is performed like standing push-ups.
Go down on all fours. Lift your toes from the floor and do push-ups.
Lie on the floor with instep stretched. Support on your toes and do push-ups without your stomach touching the floor.
Hold an elastic band in the good arm. Take hold of the other end of the elastic with the injured arm and draw the injured arm downwards.
Put the elastic under your foot, and with the injured arm draw the other end upwards by bending your arm.
Stand with your side against a wall. Hold the elastic with the injured arm with elbow bent, upper arm 90 degrees away from your body and your hand at shoulder height. The palm of your hand should face the floor. Drawn your arm downwards and in front of your stomach.
Hold the elastic with the injured arm with elbow bent and your hand at shoulder level. Stretch your arm forwards so that the elastic is tightened.
Lie on your back with the injured arm raised upwards. Hold the elastic between your hands with the good arm against your chest. Stretch the injured arm further upwards so that the shoulder blade lifts from the floor.
Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated. The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
