Now that you understand a common cause of shoulder pain, and you have made some changes to your activities, you can start incorporating exercises to correct the strength imbalances.

Strengthening these muscles will help keep the shoulder blade in its optimal position. Try doing the following shoulder exercises without resistance — it’s the best way to start incorporating them.
