I have an injured rotator cuff. I find some of these exercises hard to do. What would you recommend for people with injuries like mine?

Answer

I would recommend doing very gentle slow arm circles. You can do them with the elbow fully bent (putting the hand on top of the shoulder), so the arm doesn't feel as heavy. Only go as far as the pain threshold. Remember my motto: No Pain, Just Gain.

When people are recovering from an injury, I recommend moving underwater in the bath, pool, hot tub, or sea. Water takes the weight off and therefore eases motion. No motion, no cure.

There is a unique method for rehabilitation using warm water therapy. It's called the Burdenko method. Have a look: https://hubpages.com/health/benefits-of-aquatic-ex...
