Shoulder Range of Motion (ROM) – Sitting or Standing Position

  • Flexion/Extension
  • Scapular plane
  • Abduction/Adduction
  • Horizontal Abduction/Adduction
  • Elbow flex/ext

Hip ROM – Supine Position

  • Flexion/Extension (Knee)
  • Abduction/Adduction

Knee ROM – Supine

  • Flexion/Extension (Heel Slides)


(Phase 1)

  • ROM: Wall slides (Shoulder Flexion/Extension/Abduction/Adduction/Internal Rotation/External Rotation) in multiple planes of motion (i.e. Frontal/Scapular/Abduction/Transverse); Elbow Flex/ext; Wrist ROM
  • Stabilization exercises (Oscillations) around center “Cross-Hairs” (Up/down, Side/Side, Clockwise Circles/Counter-Clockwise Circles, Diagonals); Progress from slow to fast oscillations.

(Phase 2)

  • Same stabilization exercises as in Phase 1 but progress to larger movement patterns to include ring of dots; Add creative patterns using ring of dots; Progress from slow to fast speeds

(Phase 3)

  • Large-range oscillation exercises that include dots along the perimeter of the DS2 PLATFORM without resistance
  • Small or large-range oscillation exercises with resistive bands
  • Large-Range explosive/plyometric exercises in various pre-determined patterns
  • Eccentric exercises and/or perform exercises in various positions and shoulder angles, such as overhead or in the scapular/abducted plane with or without resistive bands; Progress from slow to fast speeds
  • Increase weight-bearing by modifying the load through the shoulder by increasing distance from the user’s feet to the wall

Floor – Upper Extremity

(Phase 1)

  • Knees close to the DS2 PLATFORM; Hands directly under shoulders with minimal weight bearing/loading through shoulder; perform traditional exercises in alternating pattern (Up/Down, Side/Side, Clockwise/Counter Clockwise, Diagonals) or create other patterns; Progress by moving knees further away from platform to increase weight bearing through the shoulder; Progress from slow to fast oscillation speeds

(Phase 2)

  • Modified push-up position (Knees)— Same traditional exercises as in Phase 1 and add other creative patterns to include ring of dots and dots along perimeter (i.e. Alternating Shoulder flexion across board, stabilize one upper extremity and move opposite arm to various pre-determined patterns, push-ups in combination with hand slides to various points); Progress from slow to fast speeds

(Phase 3)

  • Full push-up position—Same traditional exercises as in Phase 1 or 2; add other creative, more advanced exercises for shoulder and trunk stabilization/strengthening (i.e. Alternating shoulder flexion across platform, push-ups in combination with hand slides to various points, hand slides to various points using all dots on platform)

Floor – Lower Extremity

Hip – Standing

  • Internal Rotation/External Rotation/Flexion/Extension/Abduction/Adduction/Diagonal Patterns

General Lower Extremity/Core (Trunk) Strengthening

  • Lunges (Forward/Lateral/Multi-Planar)
  • Single Leg squats with dot touches
  • Hamstring Curls (Double Leg/Single Leg)
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Hip Abduction/Adduction (Bilateral in Push-up Position)
  • Knee Tucks
  • Jack Knife
