3 x’s a day,  every day,  for 6 weeks.

Starting position, your arm is bent at elbow 90 degrees and tucked close to your body ( you may tie a bathrobe belt around your waist and gently over the arm to keep it tucked in )

Your palm is facing the mid line.

1. Stretch forearm out to the side as far as is painfree.

4. Stretch the arm farther back as you exhale.
