Shoulder Pass Through – shoulder mobility

Why Stretch?

Stretching exercises encourage lengthening of your muscles and associated tendons. Short and tight muscles can lead to pressure on nerves and pain. By its effect of lengthening muscles, stretching promotes flexibility and full range of motion about your joints.

Perform 10 shoulder pass throughs 3-4 times per day

Shoulder Pass Through

Hold a PVC pipe straight (broom handle works as well)

Without bending your elbows pass the bar over your head and down to your back

Then bring forward to front

If your elbows bend your hands are too close together and will not gain benefit of stretch

Widen hands until you can pass the bar through without bending elbows

The wider the hands, the easier the motion

Push up on bar to get it to pass over your head when your hands are wide
