During this stretching exercise, be careful not to arch your back.

  • Face a wall, standing so your fingers can just touch it.
  • Keeping your shoulder down (don't shrug up toward your ear), walk the fingers of your injured arm up the wall as high as pain permits.
  • Hold that position for at least 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Slowly walk your fingers back down to the starting position.
  • Repeat at least 2 to 4 times, trying to reach higher each time.
