What is shoulder rotation (lying down with wand)?

Shoulder rotation (lying down, with wand)

  1. Lie on your back. Hold a wand with both hands with your elbows bent and palms up. You can also use a broom handle or anything stiff and about 3 feet long.
  2. Hold your elbows close to your body, and move the wand across your body toward the affected arm.
  3. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, and then return to the starting position.
  4. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
  5. It's a good idea to repeat these steps toward your other arm.
