Outward and inward rotation:

The stretching exercises should be advanced by adding resistance to them. When you perform pendulum and armpit stretch along with the above stated exercises, you might see a positive effect on the pain. Once you feel that mobility has enhanced and pain has declined add resistance to improve the results. Hold an exercise rubber band between your hands and rotate the lower part of the affected arm. Alternatively you can attach the rubber band to a knob and pull the band with the affected hand towards your body. Repeat 10-15 times
