Cross one arm in front of your body.
Bend your other elbow around the first arm as shown above.
Use your bent arm to pull your arm closer to your body. You should feel a stretch across the back of your shoulder as shown above.
Hold for 10 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side.
– 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.
