Pendular exercises are usually carried out in the early after shoulder surgery. They can also be a good way of keeping a painful shoulder moving.
Open pendular exercises document for details of exercises.
Also follow the video demonstration below. These exercises should be performed stooping over. The exercise should be done in sets of 20 repeated 4 times per day.
