Pendulum: Side-to-Side

,

Stand upright. Begin by leaning forward slightly and slowly moving the affected arm from side to side within a pain-free range. Use just enough force to keep the momentum of the swing constant. Perform this for 5 breaths. Perform this before stretching and several times through the day.

Primary Goal: This activity will get the blood flowing to the area and warm the tissue, while also stimulating the joint which will help it move better.

Focus Structures: Trapezius, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Major and Minor, Subscapularis, Deltoid, Pectoralis Major and Minor, Coracobrachialis, Biceps Brachii and Triceps
