I've been living with a shoulder injury for about 8 years now and having tried every treatment I can think of (physio, chinese massage, accupuncture, injections, anti-inflammatory pills/creams, chinese "teet da" medicine/massage) nothing seems to really help very much. However, I've noticed that two stretches that I do before playing has made a noticeable improvement but I'm keen to know what other stretches/warm up exercises others have discovered that helps with shoulder problems. The two I do are common among badminton players, which are: 1. Straight racquet arm across chest, pull racqeut arm elbow towards chest with non-racquet arm to stretch the muscle that runs from the shoulder over to the shoulder blade (not sure what it's called!) 2. Bent and raised racquet arm with racquet arm hand touching racquet arm shoulder. Pull elbow of racquet arm back with non racquet arm behind head. This stretches the muscles beneath the shoulder and on the side (again, not sure what it's called). These are the two main stretches I do, but I've noticed that it doesn't really target the area where my injury is - rotator cuff? My injury is on the front of my shoulder, about 1-inch above the armpit. So I'm wondering if there are any other good stretches that could target this area more specifically?
