Is there anything you can do to adjust the genie stretch when patients experience anterior shoulder pain (AC-joint pain or impingement/compression) during this stretch?
The first stretch is called the Genie Stretch. Russ Paine, a great PT and friend in Houston showed me this one and wrote about it in his chapter in my book . It is essentially a cross body stretch of the back of your arm. However, you use the opposite arm to enhance the stretch and stabilize the arm. Studies have shown that at restoring your shoulder internal rotation (your GIRD).
