When no pain is present, Chiropractic adjustments (to allow more spinal load during the motions) and these simple shoulder exercises will begin your recovery.

Action steps:

Stand against the wall with your heels, hips, shoulders and head (this video explains this):

First exercise: keep elbow against the wall and tucked into your side.  Turns arms out toward the wall, then back in.

Third exercise: With hips against the wall move the feet forward one foot.  Also, angle your body 10 degrees off the wall.  Keeping the hand facing downward, raise the hands with elbows slightly bend to below shoulder height.  Hold for 1 second, then lower.
