Posterior Capsule Stretch

This helps improve shoulder mobility, and can be done daily. You can do it pretty much anywhere too! Please aim to do this daily for about 30 seconds on the affected shoulder(s). Let me know if you have any questions.

This is the posterior capsule stretch, the aim is to stretch out the shoulder capsule, this will help if our internal rotation is reduced. Let’s pretend the right arm is the one that’s reduced, so the right arm goes in the left armpit. You cinch it down, raise the elbow, use the opposite hand to push that elbow up, while I’m doing this I’m trying to drop my shoulder down. Hold for about 5-10 seconds, and you can pulse it on and off and just. Do that for about 30 seconds each day. This is going to help open up the posterior capsule of the shoulder and increase range of motion.
