Can I exercise my AC joint arthropathy with having a 5mm tear in my cuff?


Thanks for your input

Yes, you can exercise and try to strengthen your shoulder even though you have a cuff tear. Generally with AC joint arthropathy repetitive overhead movements and reaching across your body can be aggravating. Consider following the exercises on this page:
