Shoulder Exercises To Avoid With A Cervical Herniated Disk

Hi everybody. I'm sure this thread will be useful to anyone who had a herniated disk in the neck.

I was diagnosed with a cervical herniated disk at C5-C6 level last December. I took a break about 2.5 months. I did some neck strengthening exercises during this time.

On March 1st, I got back to training. I started with lighter weights. Now I am close to my pre-injury weights. I trained my chest, arms, back, legs and abs.

I maintained a good body posture and neutral spine position during my lifting sessions. I avoided barbell squats, one arm dumbbell rows, pull-ups, behind neck presses, overhead presses. I had no problem so far.

I want to start training my shoulders but I am confused to select which shoulder exercises. I need advices. Thank you.

Can do any as long as they are light and not painful. avoiding valsalva which can increase pressure in disk would also be helpful

Thanks for the reply! I will start with light weights then and increase them slowly in time if I don't get any pain. I will use proper form and exhale when lifting.
