The overhead shoulder stretch for shoulder range of motion can be modified with a broom handle if clasping hands together is difficult. This video demonstrates the overhead shoulder stretch.
Let’s do the overhead shoulder stretch.
We’ll start by stepping your feet about shoulders width apart, interlacing your fingers, and pressing your palms face down.
Then bring them up overhead, facing your palms at the ceiling.
Stay here for about 20 seconds.
Now, this is a stretch that you can do one or two times a day to maintain range of motion in the shoulders.
If you come into this stretch and you feel any pain or discomfort, come right out of it right away. Consult a physician before trying it again.
Make sure that you’re breathing slowly and steadily here.
Now, if it’s uncomfortable to interlace your fingers, you can take a long pole into both hands and reach that up overhead. And again, hold it for 20 seconds.
That was the overhead shoulder stretch.
