Training ladder for: IMPINGEMENT SYNDROME IN THE SHOULDER (IMPINGEMENT)
The indications of time after stretching, coordination training and strength training show the division of time for the respective type of training when training for a period of one hour. The time indications are therefore not a definition of the daily training needs, as the daily training is determined on an individual basis.
Unlimited: Cycling. Running.
Sit on a chair with your arms outstretched behind your back with hands together. Lift your arms up and backwards so that the front of the shoulders becomes increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Sit on a chair with one hand on your head and the other holding the chair seat. Slowly draw your head to the side while resisting with the opposite arm so that the muscles on the side of the neck become increasingly stretched. Draw your head in different directions so that all the muscles around the neck are stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
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.
Sit on a chair holding the back of your hands under the lower part of the back. Press your elbows forwards and inwards so that the muscles on the back of the shoulder joint become increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and follow by pressing the elbows backwards so that increased stretching occurs on the front of the shoulder joint. Hold the position for 20 seconds.
Support with both hands against a wall. Put your weight on your hands and draw your shoulder blades backwards and forwards.
Stand slightly bent over a chair, with your weight on the good arm and the injured arm hanging loosely downwards. Lift your arm/shoulder upwards by using the shoulder blade’s muscles. You can bend your arm if you have difficulty in locating the shoulder blade muscles.
Stand with your arms outstretched at your sides with the palms of your hands facing forwards. 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.
Sit at a table with the injured arm’s elbow on a ball. Press against the ball with a slow movement for 5 seconds. Rest for 5 seconds before repeating.
Lie on your back with the injured arm pointing upwards. Stretch the arm further up so that the shoulder blade lifts from the floor, and go down again. The arm must be outstretched the whole time.
Lift both shoulders slowly upwards and down again.
Stand bending forward and supporting a chair back with one hand. Let the other arm hang freely downwards holding a weight. Move the shoulder backwards and forwards and from side to side. It is important that the arm hangs straight down the whole time.
Stand with the injured arm stretched down against your body. First move the arm out from your body 20 degrees and back again, and then out 40 degrees and back again. Finally move the arm out 60 degrees from your body and back again.
Stand slightly bent over a chair, with your weight on the good arm and the injured arm hanging loosely downwards holding a weight or a filled bottle. Lift your arm/shoulder upwards by using the shoulder blade’s muscles. Using heavier objects or weights can increase the load.
Stand at a table with the injured arm on a ball. Move the ball in all directions while applying slight pressure on the ball.
Sit on the floor with outstretched legs. Support with both hands on the floor, and lift yourself by using your arms. Both arms should be stretched.
Hold the elastic with the injured arm with your upper arm alongside your body with the elbow bent. Stretch your arm forwards so that the elastic tightens.
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.
