Internal Rotator Strengthening Exercise

Internal Rotator Strengthening Exercise

Picture of the internal rotator strengthening exercise
  • Begin by tying a piece of elastic exercise material, such as surgical tubing or Thera-band, to a doorknob.
  • Stand or sit with your shoulder relaxed and your elbow bent 90 degrees. Your upper arm should rest comfortably against your side. You can squeeze a rolled towel between your elbow and your body for comfort and to help keep your arm at your side.
  • Hold one end of the elastic band in the hand of the affected arm.
  • Rotate your forearm toward your body until it touches your belly.
  • Keep your elbow and upper arm firmly tucked against the towel roll or the side of your body during this movement.
  • Repeat 8 to 12 times.
