Avoid any movement that is straight to your side, and be careful not to arch your back. Your arm should stay about 30 degrees to the front of your side.

  • Stand with your side to a wall so that your fingers can just touch it at an angle about 30 degrees toward the front of your body.
  • Walk the fingers of your injured arm up the wall as high as pain permits. Try not to shrug your shoulder up toward your ear as you move your arm up.
  • Hold that position for a count of at least 15 to 20.
  • Walk your fingers back down to the starting position.
  • Repeat at least 2 to 4 times, trying to reach higher each time.
