Reaching-Up Shoulder Stretch

Posted by Judith Winer on

 

 

Technique:

• Place one hand behind your back
• Move it up and try to reach between your shoulder blades

 

Primary muscles: Supraspinatus. Infraspinatus.

Secondary muscles: Pectoralis major. Teres minor. Anterior deltoid. Coracobrachialis.

 

Injury where stretch may be useful: Dislocation. Subluxation. Acromioclavicular separation. Sternoclavicular separation. Impingement syndrome. Rotator cuff tendonitis. Shoulder bursitis. Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis).

 

Note: The rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder are often very tight. Perform this stretch very slowly and with extreme caution.
