During this stretching exercise, be careful not to arch your back.
Face a wall, standing so your fingers can just
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
Slowly walk your fingers back down to the starting
Repeat at least 2 to 4 times, trying to reach higher
