Posterior Capsule stretches

In the previous article on the “Dead Arm“, we have discussed the possible causes of a tight posterior capsule contributing to this condition. So, in this issue, we will demonstrate several exercises to stretch out the tight posterior capsule.

  • Lie on your side,
  • Place your shoulder and elbow at 90 degree as shown in the picture.
  • Slowly lower your forearm towards the bed till you feel a comfortable stretch at the back of the shoulder joint
  • Hold the stretch for 15 seconds and repeat 10 times.
  • In standing or sitting position,
  • Bring your shoulder diagonally across the body with the elbow turned in.
  • Feel the comfortable stretch at the back of the shoulder joint
  • Hold the stretch with your opposite hand for 15 seconds and repeat for 10 times.
  • In standing or sitting,
  • Bring the elbow across the body horizontally
  • Hold the stretch with your opposite hand placed at the elbow
  • Feel the comfortable stretch at the back of the shoulder joint
  • Hold the stretch for 15 seconds and repeat 10 times.
