Shoulder Abduction Stretch – Wall Support

  • HOW: Place your hands against the wall at about shoulder height, then crawl up with your hand as high as you feel comfortable. Now lean your body into your arm by bringing your hips away from the wall. This will be a body on arm movement which will increase the amount of shoulder elevation you are working into. Be gentle and move within your comfort.
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your shoulder region.
  • COMPENSATIONS: Avoiding pushing into the wall with your arms, this is a relatively passive exercise meaning your arms shouldn’t be working during this stretch.
