It's no secret that shoulder pain and neck pain are intimately related due to the connecting muscles. If you have not heard of Codman pendulum stretching, it's a great way to get some relief from this type of issue. Be sure to have your neck and upper back checked if you are having shoulder pain, but this exercise can help with relief until you can see a chiropractor.
How to Perform the Codman Stretch
Below is a video of Dr. Scott Owens demonstrating the Codman pendulum motion. His explanation will help you to understand how it's supposed to be done and how it's supposed to feel as you perform it correctly.
We recommend that you Ice, stretch, and protect your shoulder from further injuries, and that you come see us at the Accidents and Sports Injury Clinic in Roseville, CA. We'll get you on the road to recovery and feeling better in no time.
