The rotator cuff in the shoulder facilitates the largest range of motion of any joint in the body. It is comprised of muscles and tendons that work in harmony to coordinate movement in both the shoulder blade and arm. When functioning optimally, the rotator cuff allows us to participate in a wide range of daily activities from chores and work tasks to sports and recreation. When injured, the rotator cuff can sideline us completely.

Repetitive stress at the rotator cuff is the primary culprit for most shoulder injuries. Inflamed tendons are the most common form of injury, and they can impede the smooth transition of the tendon through the joint. However, muscle tears are also common and they too are the result of stress and strain on the rotator cuff.

With this in mind, many physicians recommend exercises to strengthen the musculature in and around the shoulder. The shoulder is comprised of four major muscles as well as tendons that run the length of the arm. When properly devised, an exercise regimen can build strength and provide flexibility for both muscles and tendons. This in turn prevents undue strain on joints and tendons.

Rotator cuff exercises provide a safe, easy way to prevent shoulder injuries. They foster muscle strength and they protect the integrity of tendons and joint tunnels. Indeed, research suggests that within as little as 4-6 weeks with the Flextend® training system, most patients report substantial improvement.
