This section shows the different uses for the exercises on the website.
The exercises are graded according to their intensity based on EMG analysis studies of Tim Uhl and the experience of leading shoulder therapists in the UK:
Not all of the exercises have been investigated and the information is intended only as a guide when choosing exercises.
We have designed a booklet of all the exercises (and more), which can be used by an individual patient with their therapist.
