In brief: Combination

If no pain can work on internal and external rotation exercises with a band.
Also can do scapular retraction exercises. When those are easy can advance to some flexion and abduction exercises with light resistance.

In brief: Jobe's exercises

Jobe's exercises have been described as a series of strengthening exercises for the rotator cuff.
They should be done with low resistance (1-3 lb dumbells or an exercise band). These exercises can be found via an internet search.
