Shoulder Exercise

Sorry. That photo should come with a warning.

I'm being worked over by a physiotherapist. My shoulder injury is over a year old and I've been worried.

After summer on the Scottish Sea Kayak Trail it was sore, which is why I have hardly been in the kayak since.

It seems my left shoulder doesn't work correctly. The shoulder blade rises of its own accord. The 'timing' is off. The answer, I'm told, is to get the smaller muscles underneath to stabilise the joint before the big ones kick in.

So I have a routine of nightly exercises with elastic bands, towels and small weights. Imagine how this delights Liz. Not.
