Previous Next 8 of 10 Shoulder stretch

If the back of your shoulder is tight, you may be more likely to develop rotator cuff problems, especially if you golf or participate in overhead racket or throwing sports, such as tennis or baseball. To keep your shoulders flexible:

  • Bring your left arm across your body and hold it with your right arm, either above or below the elbow.
  • Hold for about 30 seconds.
  • Switch arms and repeat.
