Hi Kirsty

The first important thing to do is make sure the shoulder is ready for rehab exercises, and that means rest, ice, compression, and possibly even consulting a physio or a doctor, just to make sure everything is on track. It's really important that yo do this, and don't just launch into exercises. As for those exercises, it's really difficult (and bordering on unethical) to give exercises in this format, with no history, no referral, no examination, so the best I can suggest is to see a physio about them. Alternatively, here is a pretty good website that takes you through some of them:

Good luck
