I tend to have quite tense neck/shoulders and swimming is exacerbating this and I now have a slight injury to my bicep and the supraspinatus tendon. I need some gentle but effective relaxation and strengthening exercises. Any yoga type or other stretches gratefully recieved.

Thanks

I have something similar, made worse this weekend by falling on the affected shoulder! Have noticed that there's plenty of "no weight" or "low weight" exercises on YouTube. Just type in shoulder exercises or shoulder impingement and have a nosey - I'm trying a few and it's helping me loosen up.

Got something to say?
