    Step 2: Gently pull the elbow behind your head, creating a stretch.  Remember to breath. Hold stretch for 10 to 15 seconds.

    Step 3: Remember to stretch both sides.

    Step 4: With every stretch the Range of Motion should increase.  If tightness continues try a PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) stretch. Move “stretching side” elbow into opposite hand, which will resist causing an Isometric Contraction (contraction where no movement occurs), use only 10% of strength while contracting.  Hold this contraction for approximately 5 seconds.  After relaxing a moment, provide a gentle stretch behind head until you feel a mild stretch in back of your upper arm.
