Prevent It

Having a strong, balanced shoulder is the best injury-prevention strategy. Fortunately the muscles in and around the shoulder respond well to exercise. That means that shoulder work must be a staple of your upper-body workouts, and you must work opposing muscle groups to avoid an imbalance (for every push exercise like a pushup, do an equal amount of a pulling exercise like rows).
