Picture of the arm-reach scapular exercise
  • Lie flat on your back. This exercise is a very slight motion that starts with your arms raised (elbows straight, arms straight).
  • From this position, reach higher toward the sky or ceiling, keeping your elbows straight. All motion should be from your shoulder blade only.
  • Relax back to the starting position.
  • Repeat 8 to 12 times.
