Shoulder Tendinitis & Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy: 4-Point Plank Walk-Out
Shoulder Tendinitis and Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy can cause a lot of muscle imbalances to occur at the shoulder complex. These imbalances can affect the optimal movement in the shoulder and delay your functional recovery. The four point plank walk out helps retrain important muscle activation patterns for a better functional recovery. Position yourself in plank position with supine neutral. It’s important to make sure your inner core is engaged and that you stay in spine neutral throughout this exercise. Start by walking the hand and foot out to one side,then back to the centre, and then to the other side, and back to the centre again. Put full equal weight each time you place your hand and foot down. Repeat this for 30 seconds 3 sets 2 times daily. If you have any pain or unsure if this is the right exercise for you, consult your local Physiotherapist before doing this exercise.
