Rotator Cuff is a collective term referring to 4 muscles:
- Teres Minor.
They are the four muscles hold the head of the humerus in place, and allow it to move inside the glenoid fossa without losing its position and stability.
Tightness of the rotator cuff can cause a decrease in shoulder active or even passive range. Sports involving extreme internal rotation, external rotation or overhead movement can put these muscles at risk.
Often the rotator cuff injury come from lack of mobility in the scapula or he shoulder blade. For example poor upward rotation of the scapula is known to injure or even tear the supraspinatus tendon.
Common rotator cuff stretches involve passive holds. While these exercise can slowly increase the range of motion, they also passify the muscles. This prevents the muscles from contracting at full force, and at the right time, still resulting in injuries.
This program uses kinesilogical stretches. Each rotator cuff muscle is isolated. Action vs action technique stretches the muscles, while minimizing the stretch reflex. At the same time the muscles remain fully alert and active. This allows for fast flexibility gains. In addition strength exercises are used. This allow to develop strength in deep ranges in order to protect the shoulder and transfer the flexibility into the skill.
Finally in addition to the rotator cuff the movers of the scapula are also stretches. In doing so, shoulder is ensure free mobility, unrestricted by the scapula. This further removes chances of injury. Get your Rotator Cuff Range of Motion and Flexibility Development Program Today!
