Proprioception exercises accelerate recovery from injuries to the shoulder joint, ligaments, muscles or tendons because they help the body adapt to the affected limb, avoiding unnecessary efforts during daily activities, such as moving the arm, picking up objects or cleaning the house, for example.

Usually, shoulder proprioception exercises should be done daily between 1 to 6 months, until you are able to do the exercises without difficulty or until your orthopedist or physical therapist tells you to.

Shoulder proprioception is used not only in the recovery of sports injuries such as strokes, dislocation or bursitis, but in the recovery of orthopedic surgeries or in simpler injuries, such as shoulder tendinitis, for example.
