Shoulder Pain Exercises PNF Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation D1 D2 Ask Jo
Hey everybody, it's Jo. My buddy Daveasked me if I could make a tutorial for shoulder exercises for the rotator cuff, but a littlemore advanced than the ones I already have, so let's get started. These advanced shoulderexercises are called PNF Exercises. What does PNF stand for? Proprioceptive NeuromuscularFacilitation. Yeah, that's a mouthful, so I'm just gonna keep it at PNF. But basicallywhat PNF is, is different planes of movements. I've already showed you some tutorials to strengthenyour shoulder going in one plane, PNF actually changes through different planes, so the firstone is what I call quot;Throwing the Sword Away.quot; You want to take your hand and turn it overlike you're grabbing a sword down by your
side here. And you're gonna turn your armopen and then open up your hand like you're throwing it away. So it's grab down fist closed,fist closed, opening up the fist and going away. So you're getting a rotation movementin your arm across all those planes. And then coming back down and grabbing it. And openingup. Coming down. and opening it up. That even makes my shoulder tired. The next oneyou're gonna make a fist and put it across your shoulder, almost like you're saying thePledge of Allegiance, and then coming down and opening up. So turning, making a fist,opening up and throwing away. Now you can also do these with a resistive band if theseare easy. Ok. So if you feel like you're ready
to use a band, you're gonna do the same movements.This time, put the stable hand down by your pocket, grab it here. Give yourself a littlebit of pulling room, and come up and over. Now you're not gonna be able to open up yourhand this time or you're gonna smack yourself with the theraband, but come back down, openup. Make sure you're controlling the band, don't let the band control you. Now when you'refirst doing this, you probably only want to start off with 10. Just really working theshoulder. Now make sure you're not moving your whole body with it, you're just movingyour shoulder with it. Going down, coming up. And the next one, hold here across yourchest and come down. Slowly coming up, coming
back down. Now if you don't want to hold it,you can tie that little knot right there and put it in a door and still do these same motions,just make sure it's up high there, and then you're pulling down and slowly coming backup. There you have it. Those were the advanced shoulder exercises with PNF movements withand without the resistive band. If you have any questions, leave them in the commentssection, and if you want to check out some other tutorials if you're not quite ready forthese, go to AskJo .

Sciatic Nerve Pain Stretches Exercises Ask Jo
Hey y'all, it's Jo and my assistantwith me today is Bailey again. And today I'm going to be talking about your piriformis.So lots of times I hear people say they've got that sciatic nerve, well actually everybodyhas a sciatic nerve, but you can have pain coming from that nerve, and a lot of timesthat piriformis muscle is causing the pain. So we're gonna show you some stretches tostretch out your piriformis and hopefully get rid of that sciatic nerve pain. Alrightlet's go on to our backs. Here we go. I think we're gonna maybe move Bailey out of the way.In the first stretch for your piriformis is a pretty simple one. A lot of pictures youmay get from your therapist will actually
show one leg down, I actually like for youto have it staying up so you can prop your foot over it. So your gonna make almost likea figure 4 with your legs and then what you're gonna do, the side that's hurting, so my leftside is hurting, I'm gonna cross that leg over. And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna bringmy knee with my opposite hand towards my shoulder over here. So I'm pulling this leg up and acrossmy body. And what you wanna do same kind of thing with all the stretches, you wanna pulland you wanna feel a stretch under there. Soon as you feel a really good stretch youwanna hold it for 30 seconds. So remember up and across the body. Just coming up isnot gonna get that piriformis stretch. But
coming up and across the body like I'm tryingto bring that knee towards my shoulder. Holding it there for about 30 secondsa real 30 seconds.And then coming back down and you wanna do that 3 times. Now the next one to do, sometimesthis is a little harder for people, but what your gonna do is your gonna keep that samefigure 4, and what your gonna do is your gonna take your hands and on the opposite side thatit's hurting, so the hurting side is still up crossed over it's still my left side. I'mgonna take my hands and put them underneath my thigh, and I'm gonna bring my leg up, andI'm gonna pull until I feel that stretch underneath there. Now some people might have a hard timegrabbing on to their leg here, so again you
can use your belt, or your dog leash and putit under, around your leg, and pull up towards you like this. Same kind of thing, you wantto hold that stretch for 30 secondsbye Bailey, we'll see you later and then 3 times each.Alright, so now you're gonna bring that down getting it nice and stretched. For those ofyou that need a stronger stretch, those might not be stretching it out quite as much, whatI'm gonna have you do is I'm gonna have you turn over. And what your gonna do is the sidethat's hurt again, my left side, I'm gonna bring my leg up across. Now as you can see,this is something you have to be pretty high level, pretty flexible to do, but it's gonnaget a fantastic stretch. So your gonna put
your knee over across your body, and bringyour body down. So it's almost that same concept, you're bringing that knee towards the oppositeshoulder, but what you're doing now, is you're using your body weight to bring it down. Youcan stretch that back leg as far as you can. You can bring your arms down, but that kneeis essentially going towards that opposite shoulder. 30 second stretch, 3 times each.Alright and there you have it. Those were your piriformis stretches. So if you had somepressure on that sciatic nerve, hopefully that will loosen it up a little bit.
