If you play a lot of tennis, you might start to notice some shoulder pain. Since the shoulder joint hinges forward so much in this sport, it puts a lot of stress on the rotator cuff, the ligaments, and the tendons, which can lead to an injury.
Place your knuckles to your temples and make sure your elbows are all the way back. Slowly bring the elbows together to stretch out the shoulder and reduce your pain. Learn more about the stretch in this video.
Whether or not the stretch alleviates your pain, you should still schedule an appointment with an orthopedic doctor at Able Orthopedic & Sports Medicine. Our doctors are here to help you work through sports injuries and return to your original condition. Call (718) 897-2228 to schedule an appointment at our Forest Hills office.
