See the link: This is a high-quality website and the link will provide you with shoulder rehab exercises. http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00663 Do not do any that create an increase in pain. I like icing for pain relief, 20 minutes at a time, especially after rehab exercises, and heat (if helpful) prior to rehab exercises.
