The purpose of these exercises is to stretch your child’s shoulder muscles rather than to increase shoulder strength. Your child’s therapist will decide the length of time to hold each stretch and number of times per day your child should do each stretch. If your child has any pain during or after these exercises, please tell the therapist before you do the exercises again.
