A search term on my blog yesterday was “rotator cuff exercises for stroke patient.” The exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff are the same whether you had a stroke or not. The muscles and nerves are all the same as before a stroke. The rotator cuff is the rotator cuff, it doesn’t change just because you had a stroke. What changes is the ability to do some of these exercises properly and modifications might have to be made in order to work the correct muscles. In some cases, major modifications. If that is the case, you would probably need to see a PT in order make sure the correct muscles are firing. But essentially, it’s the same as the day before you stroked.
