This response may reflect a guarding response in patients with pathology. The results of this present study indicate that adding a 1.

In either case, the goal is to have your arm hanging loosely, with your shoulder blade relaxed. If you have increased swelling or numbness in your hand or arm, stop the exercise and take a break before trying it again.

EMG activity for group ecercises pathological and non-pathological shoulder expressed as percentage of MVIC for the infraspinatus. J Orthopedics ; 21 ;—84 [ PubMed ]. Trying to eat healthy, exercise more, or get into mindfulness and meditation? Very few exercides have been conducted regarding this frequently used shoulder exercise during the early stages of rehabilitation. The participant was randomly assigned an order of exerfises. They allow for movement and stability to the otherwise loose ball and socket shoulder joint.

Methods Twenty-six participants, ages 20 to 56 years old mean Codman’s pendulum exercises are commonly prescribed after shoulder surgery and injury to provide grade I and II distraction and oscillation resulting in decreased pain, increased flow of nutrients into the joint space, and early joint mobilization.

Pendulum and Codman Exercises for Shoulder Rehabilitation

The MVIC was recorded as the participant abducted the arm and pressed as hard as they could into a pillow against the wall. Using a sample size of ten healthy volunteers, the authors tested various exercises commonly used postoperatively following shoulder surgery using surface electrodes.


Choose from a category below. Muscle activity output was checked prior the initiation of testing by having the participant contract each muscle to ensure correct electrode placement. Codman exercises can be done in one of two ways. Therefore, the infraspinatus codmaan appears to be able to relax during pendulum exercises.

They concluded that therapist assisted exercises and Codman’s pendulum exercises showed activity that was not significantly different from that of a CPM machine. Thomas Todd Company; Greenhouse-Geisser corrections were applied to significant ANOVAs that did not meet Mauchly’s sphericity assumption in order to reduce the likelihood of a type I error.

Influence of joint position on electromyography and torque generation during maximal voluntary isometric contractions of the hamstrings and gluteus maximus muscles. Always consult your doctor or physical therapist before beginning an exercise program. Results When grouped across all patients and all other factors included in the ANOVA, the type of pendulum exercise did not have cldman significant effect on shoulder EMG activity regardless of patient population or muscle tested.

Because it ckdman so mobile, the shoulder is also vulnerable to injury. One passive shoulder exercise often prescribed during shoulder rehabilitation is called the pendulum or Codman exercise, developed by Edina Codman.

The placement of the electrodes was determined by referencing the work of the Delagi and Perotto. Exercise Shape Created with Sketch. Participants in both the pathological and non-pathological groups were instructed to perform four variations of Codman’s pendulum exercises; Suspended ball weight of 1.

Eur J Appl Physiol ; Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body.

When grouped across all patients and all other factors included in the ANOVA, the type of pendulum exercise did not have a significant effect on shoulder EMG activity regardless of patient population or muscle tested. Pain Relief Exercises for Meralgia Paresthetica Meralgia paresthetica can cause debilitating pain or tingling and numbness. Once in position, you can begin to move your arm gently by swinging it.

We explain the muscles pushups work, as well as variations on them. Electromyography of the shoulder: Because those muscles are being used almost constantly, they grow tight and sore. An analysis of passive modes of exercise. Limitations of the study include use of surface EMG to measure muscle activity, especially in the supraspinatus muscle. Unfortunately, this brings with it a greater chance of injury. The study conducted by Dockery et al2 used similar methodology including the use of surface EMG and found similar results as this present study.


In a similar study, McCann et al1 used intramuscular fine wire EMG electrodes to examine shoulder muscles activity during passive, active, and resistive rehabilitation exercises.

Rock your body weight so that your dangling arm slowly moves in a circle. A circle was placed on the floor for guidance to control for the amount of circumduction that the participant would achieve during the testing. Relieve Pain and Improve Circulations. Follow all recommendations made by your doctor to prevent reinjury.

An alpha of 0. Let us and our shoulders know in the comments below. Return to the starting position and then move your arm gently forward and backward about five to 20 times coeman each arm.

Codman Shoulder Exercises | SportsRec

A maximum voluntary isometric contraction Pednulum for each muscle was performed for normalizing muscle activity during the Codman exercises. Codamn signals were low pass filtered at Hz and high pass filtered at 10Hz. Once you’ve got your comfy clothes on, you’re ready to go. Dockery et al 2 evaluated the different rehabilitation protocols using electromyographic EMG analysis of the rotator cuff muscles to determine if different protocols promoted passive motion and how much rotator cuff activation occurred.

For the traditional Codman pendulum exercise — which is a sort of three-part stretching routine done from one exercisws position — you’ll need a sturdy table or chair that’s about thigh-high. While your arm is swinging, your body is circulating blood through the muscles and joint capsule of your shoulder. That’s why we’ve put together a simple routine of….
