Shoulder pain stabilization exercise with kettlebell: Video

March 5th, 2018

People who suffer from shoulder pain can try an easy exercise using a common exercise tool, the kettlebell, to stabilize the shoulder and relieve some of the pain. In this video, Point Performance physical therapist Adam Gershowitz demonstrates how to do a bottoms-up kettlebell press.

First, you can choose to lie on the floor or on a foam roller for an extra challenge. Balance the kettlebell with the bottom up in the air to do a full-range chest press with an optional twist in the end, while the kettlebell is in the air. Try to move the arm farther away from the trunk and get a good reach at the top to activate the posterior cuff muscles. This helps to stabilize the muscles and strengthen the shoulders.
