In brief: Shoulder blade

When the shoulder and biceps is inflamed during episodes of tendinitis, we do not want to aggravate things further. The best treatment is to stabilize the shoulder with improved posture and pulling the shoulder away from the inflamed areas.
Rowing exercises and reverse butterflies help by strengthening the back shoulder blade muscles to pull the shoulders back and to improve overall posture.
