Any good free websites for physical therapy

My lousy insurance copy is $60 for a physical therapy session which doesn't fit in my budget now days. Are there any good websites that list exercises that i can do at home to strengthen my knees(arthritic) and shoulder (partial tears of rotator and labrum)? A lot of the websites I find are for professional athletes.
Thanks or any suggestions

I would look into a surgeon for this stuff, though. Your Dr may be able to give you exercises too.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

For the shoulder, take a light dumbell (5 lbs) hold it straight out in front of you at shoulder height, then roll your wrist over like you're dumping out a glass of water. Keep your elbow locked and raise the weight over your head. Another one is with a little heavier dumbell, lock your elbow to your side with the weight out in front of you like you were pointing a pistol at someone. Keep your elbow stationary to your side while pulling the weight across your body and back. On the return, make sure you go past the point where your elbow is against your side.
I don't have anything I can suggest for knees. You might want to try taking glucosamine condroitant for your joints. You can pick it up at GNC and I've seen it at Walgreen pharmacy. My buddy started takeing it for his joints and he swears by it.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
