Shoulder passive range of motion (PROM) & active assisted range of motion (AAROM) exercises get movement back in the shoulder after an injury or surgery. If you’ve had a surgery, make sure you know your precautions.
The first shoulder exercises are for PROM, though it’s really hard to do a completely passive movement when you are awake, but these are the closest you will get. Pendulum exercises and using a pulley are a great way to get motion passively in your shoulder.
In this video, I’m using the RangeMaster BlueRanger Shoulder Pulley. The pulley is easy to adjust and has a nice door hanging attachment, or can also be hung from the ceiling.
For shoulder AAROM, you can use a table, countertop, or chair to help assist your arm with the movement. You can also use a PVC pipe, cane, or even broom stick to get AAROM as well.
Finally, a child’s pose or prayer stretch is another great way to get AAROM or even PROM in your shoulder.
