Hi, this is Jason Morgan with Muscleworx Fitness in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Today, I am going to give you some tips on how to strengthen your shoulder tendinitis. Shoulder tendinitis or even bursitis tend to be diseases of inflammation or conditions of inflammation. The first thing we want to do is make sure that we are getting the inflammation out of the body as best possible. So, a couple of things that we can do from a natural dietary standpoint, we can start to take fish oils which are natural anti-inflammatories. They also help lubricate the joints and the connective tissues. So, they are almost kind of a can do or must have supplement just for anybody especially if you have any type of inflammatory issues. Second thing is we can remove toxins from our diet. So, we want to keep away from things that would cause inflammation in the body. So, stay away from processed foods, stay away from you know extreme amounts of pesticides and stuff. Try to eat as healthfully and naturally as you can to help keep the inflammation in your body down. And that will help improve your shoulder tendinitis. So, we are going to start with a dumbbell in this instance. You can do the same movement with an exercise band, whether it be a tube or a flat band tied to a door or looped around a piece of equipment at the machine. So, first thing we are going to do is secure the elbow down by the side of the rib cage. Bring the forearm across the body, and we are going to rotate the dumbbell out as far as you can come and then back in towards the abdomen. Out and in, these are slow and controlled movements warming up that rotator cuff and the shoulder girdle. Ten to fifteen repetitions for each side. Next thing we are going to do is bring the arms up so that they are parallel to the floor, and we are going to drop the elbow or the dumbbell down rather towards the floor to start with. Rotate it back up so that we are facing the ceiling. Keeping the upper arm parallel to the floor, see if you can drop that down a little for me. Going through that full range of motion. Two more. And those are a few tips that you can use to help improve your shoulder tendinitis.
