However, our instructions will illustrate the exercise from the seated position.Seat yourself on a stool, the edge of a chair, or on the edge of your bed. You need enough space behind you to rest your hands and rotate your elbows. Sit up straight, keeping your spine and neck in a straight line.
Repeat this exercise 5 to 7 times. If you can't move both shoulders and arms symmetrically yet, don't worry. Just do what you can. Try to increase your stretching time as you feel able, to get your shoulder blades moving again.
