This exercise is great for many shoulder conditions and to relieve general stiffness in the area.
1. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart.
2. Lean forwards from your waist.
3. Rest one arm on a chair, table or wall.
4. Allow your other arm to hang freely.
5. Gently swing your arm in a small circle.
6. Perform for 30 seconds clockwise and 30 seconds anti-clockwise.
7. Repeat this exercise on both arms, once a day.
– Keep breathing normally while you stretch. Do not hold your breath.
– Stretch gently and slowly. You should be able to feel a stretching sensation but it should not hurt.
– If a stretch becomes painful, stop immediately and seek advice from your therapist.
– Only perform stretches which have been prescribed or approved by a qualified individual such as your GP, physiotherapist or osteopath.
