Precision Wellbeing's Osteopath Ashley Ridout goes into depth as to why most people he sees have shoulder pain.

The most common cause is over-tightness of the shoulder muscles which leads on to the development of tendinitis or bursitis.

In many cases shoulder pain can be overcome through stretching the shoulders with a strength band and using massage balls to reduce the tightness.

In this video Ashley discusses the anatomy of the shoulder including the muscles of the rotator cuff and touches on some of the issues that can arise.

Ashley then goes on to show you the tests that he finds most useful in screening shoulder pain followed by the stretches and massage ball techniques he finds most useful.

This video will hopefully be useful for those who suffer from chronic shoulder pain, tendinitis, bursitis, rotator cuff injuries or just want to simply increase their overall shoulder health.

After playing violin for over 40 years and at age 67 I must have osteoarthritis on my left shoulder. I wish I did these exercises at least 20 to 30 years ago. Now I just depend on arnica, CBD cream and well yes, ibuprofin...dang!

Been having pain in my shoulder when I reach behind me. Didn't realize how much range of motion I had lost until I did your test. Guess I need to get stretching!

HI. That is exactly where my pain is. How long should I do the exercises for and how many reps?

Author — Den Robin


Whenever I get the severe pain is usually if I've lifted something heavy such as bringing in groceries or some raking with yard work.. The following day I'm in so much pain that I sometimes have to go to the ER... on my own I would try to take my fingers and pressure point the area where the bursa pain is usually very hot... I take Bayer Aspirin and I put my fingers where the pain is and pressure point that and before long it's gone I also at times have taking my arm bring it to behind my back somehow that seems to relieve it as well now I know to use that pressure ball and also be careful with yard work and lifting heavy bags as I am not a young person anymore in my late 60s... I thank you God bless you

I'm a retired doctor. The shoulder including the rotator cuff was of great interest to me. Your program and anatomy lesson was exemplary. The best I've ever heard from anyone doctors included. U have a real talent for making things understandible!

Fantastic, exactly where my pain is. I went for therapeutic treatment here in Mallorca at a hospital and it worked! But slowly going back to pain phase 2 months later. Thank you very much!

Wow, I tried these exercises a few days apart and my shoulder feels much better. The simplest caused discomfort, now the pain seems gone

A helpful hint about positioning the ball-put it in a tube sock and for those with limited mobility will be able to easily get it to the correct spot and then move it around.

Wow, so much relief! I've had shoulder pain for almost 8 months now and this stretch relieved my shoulder pain. I will definitely start using this technique. Thank you!

Author — Larry Rodriguez


Finally an explanation that makes sense. I have been asking specialists for years and never received a clear answer .

Author — Nifty Nev


Thank you. I will try this and see if it helps. I am an "older person" as you called it and do not want to have to have a operation.

one could attach that "hard ball" on a piece of dowel... it would be really easy to place the ball behind one's back...vs the reaching to place

Just to confirm, these exercises reduce the swelling in or of the bursa? My issue is the lifting the arm at the side. The one you did where you noted the problem occurs between 40 and 120 and I was doing it and that burning pain erupted. I have good flex and my scratch test just confirms that my right shoulder is injured but I reach fairly far with it still. Just stopped typing to do the arm lifts and the side lift didn't bother me. But this is now about 4 or 5 weeks since I aggravated the shoulder with a week of skipping and a day of playing racket ball. The pain isn't a constant thing now.

So after all that, my question is if those exercises resolve the swelling of that top muscle as well.

Thanks for the video. I liked the visuals of what is causing so much trouble.

When i do a barbell push, i can only do it behind my head, i feel sometimes only a bit pain the first1-3 reps of the 1st set and then its gone and i can do 3 sets, BUT i CANT do the barbell push infront of my head, so on the chest/collarbone, my right shoulder basicly -at 1 point- comes to a point where its extremly painfull and i loose controle of it, ir kindof feels like a nerve is stuck or something

My one shoulder blade was cut off / removed So I don’t know where those muscles would be hooking up any more.. 🥴
Surgury was due to a motorcycle accident..& both of my rotator cupsI think that is what they r called ...are crushed.. and the collar bones- shortened or cut off....I cannot lift either arm up very high.. .
I am in such misery... by the minute
Now...-Both shoulders require minimum two surgeries each..- to possibly get better..
